Help with shrub identification

Can anyone identify this shrub for me?   It is approximately 5′ high and has an open spread of branches from the base. I believe it has small white (?) flowers.

I am trying to determine if it is a native species or not. 

Thank you!

    It looks like Spiraea x vanhouttei in the family: Rosaceae. Common name Spiraea, also commonly called Bridalwreath. It is a result of cross between Spiraea trilobata and Spiraea cantoniensis; zone: 3 to 8. It is particularly noted for its showy spring bloom with tiny white flowers.

    Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade, a wide range of soils and some drought.

    Native to Canada, China, and United States.
