Help with identifying this shrub

daven1June 25, 2014

Hi,
This shrub seems to be missing from my garden blueprint.
Can anyone tell me what it is.

Also any guidance on maintenance---such as how to control the suckers.

thank you!

Should I allow the suckering to spread? Or better to continually pull them up and cut out the roots?

It's considered a desirable plant and mostly suckers when it gets good moisture. You only need to deal with the suckers if you don't want it to spread.
