Mystery plants of Newcastle, KZN

Hiya! So,having just moved into a new house in a new town, I find myself faced with a garden full of unknown plants. The pictures are of a bush, about 2 metres high, that has begun flowering this last week, and profusely at that. The flowers have no scent, look most like tiny roses and are about the size of a thumb nail. The bush itself is rapidly beginning to invade my driveway space, and I suspect that I’m meant to prune/trim it back sometime soon.

If anyone has any idea of what this plant is, and also how to maintain it, such info would be much appreciated. There are more images of this plant at

Thanks! Sarah
