It may be Bridalwreath, Spiraea prunifolia.

That Bridalwreath is very pretty baby's breath. I plan on trying to plant Baby's Breath around my roses this spring. Starting from seed. I hope it takes...I think my roses will be extra pretty with baby's breath all around it.

THAT"S IT !!! Thank you, mine is huge.[taller than me 5'5] I am going to research it and see if I can cut it back. If anyone wants some let me know, do not know how easy it will be to transplant but will try to get some in a pot and see how it does.

We divided some at Deb's that day - and it all appears to be fine - i too have blooms on mine - and they (all the different pieces) made it through the winter fine! I am actually gonna try to get some in the ground today....
