Help with identifying this shrub

daven1June 25, 2014

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.
