This guy is on a Spiraea x bumalda Goldmound:, Goldmound Spirea. This is a lovely yellow leafed plant that thrives here. One of the great features of the plant is that it attracts a huge range of butter-flies to this garden. Such as this one here enjoying the pink flowers. These butter-flies are not rare here but I actually do not see them very often. I am asked often what it is. I believe they are more common in the Eastern Seaboard States of the United States.
What I find most attractive about these is the shape of the wing edge.
