Can you add a side view photo of the hole plant?

Looks to me like it could be a Buddleia or Butterfly Bush. I have a couple of these - one white flower and one purple flower - and I cut them back hard in winter and they grow back quite nice and bushy.

Thank you. This was our first spring in this house. The back yard is all shrubs and rocks. We are just trying to figure out what everything is.

Not a Buddleia or Butterfly Bush.
It is a Caryopteris. It will bloom late summer-early fall. The flowers are light blue or dark blue that are bee magnets.

Yes! I think mine may be also called Blue Spirea.
