    It does flower. I recall them being red but the dead petals almost look people. I missed the color as the temp dropped and must have killed them off. It's in the back so I want back there for a few days.

    Anyway it's close to a stump i want to grind out and I fear it may it may take damage in the process. I wouldn't mind using the space for something else, but it is s nice flowering bush. 20170315_172637.jpg

    Are the leaves a little hairy? Or are they shiny like somebody polished them?

    My first impression is azalea or rhododendron. It would really help if you posted a photo of a single branch close up, though.

    Looks like some type of PJM Rhodie. Flowers are pretty short lived on this bush, so don't blink or you might miss them.

    It shouldn't be a problem grinding out the stump. Any root damage that occurs will be minor and shouldn't affect the shrub. :)

    It looks like an azalea.
    Sheal is right about your stump. Go ahead and grind away. If you're worried just go out there and spray some water on it 3 or 4 times a week for 3 or 4 weeks until it reestablishes that root mass.
