Does anyone know what this is? It has the blooms only in the spring.

The blooms seem to last at least a month.

It looks like Nerium(commonly called oleander)which is very popular and grows well around here,in central S.C.However,this starts blooming in the late spring and lasts well into the fall,so I could be wrong.I looked it up in Taylor's and the picture there looks just like the one you posted.

Yup. Loropetalum. Mine flower almost all year, and the leaves are awesome. Green, then orange, then bright red, all the while having the pink flowers. One of my favorite plants personally, and in designs.
That one looks like the Plum Variety.
P.S. Oleander looks nothing like this, it has individual shoots with flowers at the ends, not shrub-like like this one. Think of VERY large vincas. lol
