Looking for Plant I.D. -another bush with tiny pink flowers

Recommended Posts

Calling all botanists and gardeners -I need help at a bush with tiny pink flowers (different from the last one).  This one was spotted in a community garden in Greater Vancouver, earlier this month. I've done image searches, but keep getting lilacs.  The flowers aren't like lilacs in that they have long protruding stamens.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Spirea - Anthony Waterer - or similar (Spiraea japonica) ?

Looks more like Filipendula rubra than a shrubby Spirea.  Is the foliage palmate - divided into 5 or 6 divisions with serrated edges?

Looks like F. rubra  (maybe 'Venusta'), there's what seems to be a cotton candy leaf just to the bottom right of the flowers.

Missed that leaf - definitely F.rubra in that case.
