Hello, I was just wondering if you could help me identify some shrubs outside of our home. We are not sure if we want to keep them or what to do with them. I thought if I knew what they are that maybe I could make up my mind. I did a search on their characteristics but it did not give me any results. Photos were taken on May 26th. The tiny flowers do not last all summer, small berries grow in late summer early fall.
thanks,
kathi

Welcome!

Cotoneaster franchetii is a good suggestion .. it has blush white flowers.

It could also be Cotoneaster lacteus ..

Both of the above are said to have arching or weeping branches, this shrub is very upright.

Cotoneaster simonsii is upright .. but the leaves look too small.
