    looks like a spirea. You can trim it back or leave it alone, I'd cut it back.

    like this in the summer? i had these out front of the townhome i lived in. stihl hedge trimmer at the end of fall worked great. dont know when the best time to trim these is, but i would assume during dormancy i guess.

    From the picture I'd say it is a Spirea also. They should be trimmed after flowering (mid to late summer depending on variety).
