Please help me identify this shrub

please can you help me identify this? I'm wondering whether it's a spirea?
Thanks in anticipation,

    spiraea douglasii. A bit of a weed IMHO. Send out runners and then is very hard to get rid of.
  • Thank you both. It looks quite nice where it is and fills a gap so I think it can stay. I know what you mean though, it also pops up every now and then on my boundary, seemingly appearing from nowhere.
