    Good call...never seen spirea quite like that. You could very well be right.

    My Spirea have not leafed out yet. Are there evergreen Spirea. My guess even though that trunk is pretty thick is Azalea.

    What I would do is ASAP cut those grasses as close to the ground as you can & wait for the shrub in the background to either put out new leaves or flower, which will make easier to identify & prune correctly.

    (Quote) I must be blind...I don't see any grasses other than the turf.

    I just drank a glass of wine, and I am aware that I can say some crazy things after my heart medicine. My vision might go also. In my youth, I've woke up some mornings wondering who the hell is this, where am I at & how the hell did I get here.

    Aren't they Ornamental Grasses in front. I screwed up the reply/ quote thing too.

    There's turfgrass, then either spirea or deutzia (I'm leaning towards deutzia as the growth habit isn't quite right for any spirea I know of) and then a PJM. Some other deciduous shrub next to the PJM.
