Does anyone now what this is called, please



That's Spiraea douglasii (Steeple bush) - bit different from other spiraeas - was surprised to discover it's one of them, lol

Thank you Okasia, it's been covered in blooms, we also have a small one in the front garden.....

It gets pruned in the spring and you can cut it back as hard as you like it will grow up again and flower just like this year. One word of warning however I have found it likes to wander via under ground stems. I would ruthlessly cut them out as soon as you spot them or it will be all over the garden in no time.

I do hope you are enjoying the new house and garden. I missed that you had moved. .

Yes very much, I don't regret any of it. I now have a much bigger garden than what I did have and feel so much more relaxed here. Once again thank you I've just added you on to my favorites.....
