False Spirea?

Having a bit of a time identifying this one. Is it perhaps a false spirea or Spiraea douglasii (Hook)? Bees love it, whatever the name is!

If this beautiful specimen is Spiraea douglasii (Hook), how did it become associated with a famous pirate? "Blow me down! Arrgh, Edward, look at the pretty pink blossom, Peter be damned!"
