Yes--likely one of the bazillion cultivars of S. japonica or S. x bumalda (lots of them in slightly varying shades of pink flowers, so I don't think you'll be able to conclusively know which one it is)

Yes, Spiraea. Looks like Spiraea x bumalda 'Anthony Waterer'.

ecrane3 is probably correct... difficult to ID the exact cultivar... I was just guessing based on what's commonly available.

You could be right--that's definitely a common one at least here in the US. I just know that I have a couple different ones in my garden and the tags went missing a couple years ago, and even though I know which ones I purchased originally, for the life of me I can't tell which is which now! LOL

perennialyyours, ecrane3, TomH3787,

Thank you for you time and help,
Spireae japonica seems to my untrained eye to be the match.
Spireae x bumalda 'Anthony Waterer' is to me a much deeper.
