Hi Khayla I think you might have a lacecap hydrangea there. The white one. It is lovely. There is instructions for pruning them on the link below. If you feel it is too big you could put in something like an azalea, a skimmia or a hebe. If you click on 'S' in the A-Z at the foot of the page you can take a look at shrubs other members grow.

Ur Lacecap Hydrangea & Cosmos are lovely.
If u want to prune it, but I wouldn't if I had it. Just cut it down to where there is the next bud coming out and just keep it dead headed.
