Hi folks, new to the forum :)

I wondered if anyone could assist me in identifying an overgrown bush in the back garden of my house?

I've recently moved in and I am tackling an overgrown jungle (somewhat).

Hi & welcome!

A closer pic of foliage/flowers may be needed for someone to recognize.

Welcome!

I wondered if it was a Spiraea but a closer pic would certainly help.

It looks like Bridal Veil Spirea but closer photos would be good.

Looks like a Spirea.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks folks, it is indeed Bridal Veil Spirea - managed to find some info on it. :)
I'm going to post a few more id requests - stumped by a few other shrubs.

I believe this to be a rose of some description:

I believe this has white flowers in spring:

I agree your first addition is an old rose of some sort. However your plants would get more attention if you presented them each in a separate post.

In the second bunch of photos, the 3rd one looks like a euphoria of some sort, and the last one looks like a masterwort to me.

It's definitely not a euphoria, but thank you for your post. This particular plant has larger white flowers.

Actually it is a euphorbia and has been IDed in your separate thread of the same photo. She was talking about the 3rd photo. nodding
