Question I want to know what kind of shrubs those are!

I was in Branson about two weeks ago and noticed a flowering shrub all over Branson. At the businesses along highway 76 and at Branson Landing. They are about 7 ft tall and have beautiful pink flowers all over them. I would love to know what they are. Does anyone know?

I haven't been to Branson recently enough to know which ones you're referring to......

Sans a photo, I would guess maybe Spirea?

Default Crape myrtle

Beautiful! I believe it's a crape myrtle. Definitely not spirea (I only know that because my grandma has tons of those).
