    This looks like a flower garden to me!!! What plant specifically are you referring to? The one with the red blooms (that is a bottle brush) or the one with the dark green leaves behind it? Not clear enough to tell what it is.

    They kind of look like Korean Azaleas. Google that and check out the images.

    Don't cut them back work around and in between and behind them, they are great, you would spoil the garden if you do.....

      the Azaleas only cut back after they bloom , early spring. Roses cut back early spring to,

    shrubs against house look like privet. Gently lasso and pull away from house while painting, or remove completely.

    They are definitely azaleas with the blooms. The tall bushes in the back, don't know.

    You can trim the azaleas but they are much prettier if you let them mix together.

    I agree with Marge, they are azaleas. I have had them for years! You can cut them back & you can even shape them. Depending on where you live and what driving they are. I have two different varieties. I wait till they are finished blooming and then I cut them back. They come back very strong and beautiful.

      If you cut them back now you will cut spring blooms off.. they are already budding! Just cover them with an old sheet or something.

    That was supposed to say depending on where you live and what variety they are.
