Definately a spirea but I can't say which one. Possibly Goldmound.

I have to go with Goldmound Spirea. And the judges have decided to split points between BBQ and Eeyore,

BBQ had the first answer, but Eeyore was more precise!

Round 4 in 10 minutes!

Round 4 people!

Now I have this flower in many places around and in my beds. It acts as a weed and in fact might even be a weed! But it's pretty so I keep it!
