I am unable to tell you the exact variety, but these shrubs are lilac bushes, perhaps one called Miss Kim. There are a large number of lovely lilacs available at local nurseries that perform well in Michigan. Here is a site that will tell you the kind of conditions lilacs prefer to perform well and information on when to prune them:
