Yes it is spirea but I have no idea which variety or cultivar! It is actually the neighbor's but hangs over into my yard and looks very pretty. Smiling

Looks like it to me. Check my photos of Renaissance/VanHoutte spirea.

thanks, Jeanie. Do you have links for those? Nothing comes up for me in the database. Not sure what I'm doing wrong...

Sadly, I have not yet figured out how to do that. The plant is listed in the database as Van Houtte Spiraea (Spiraea x vanhouttei 'Renaissance').

thanks so much, Jeanie and Hetty! I was scrolling through the Spirea section and found this, which looks like a close match:
Meadowsweet (Spiraea alba)

What do you think? I'm all ears!

I'm more comfortable moving it into the generic entry since there are numerous spiraea that have similar blooms.
