Pink Puzzle

There’s a big grassy Domain at Dunsdale Reserve and we found this huge plant with pink flowers near where we parked the car. We were puzzled about what it is. I was just about to publish this, asking if any of you know if its Spiraea when Nigel found it to be Spiraea douglasii or Western Spirea. “Native to Western North America”, I read. It needs consistent moisture so it’s well located in Southland, not to mention by a water tank LOL 😀
