Description

The Chinese Snowball Bush isn't your everyday shrub. It is a showy plant you choose for you home when you want your landscape noticed! There are many similar bushes, but the Chinese Snowball Viburnum is our top choice.

The Viburnum macrocephalum 'Sterile' is fruitless, so no messy fruits to step on or invasive spreading. Since this shrub doesn't produce fruit it is a heavy bloomer and for longer than similar varieties. With a much stronger resistance to disease than its relatives, this Snowball bush is extremely hardy. The Chinese Snowball is as tough as it is beautiful!

Tons of gorgeous, 6 to 8 inch flowers similar to hydrangea burst open in spring. These blooms start out green and transition to pure white over several weeks. Spring blooms last into summer, but the show isn't over! Mature plants repeat bloom or rebloom in late summer! You will get months, not weeks, of beauty from this Snowball Viburnum! Enjoy the cut flowers in your home or give as a gift!

This lovely viburnum is pest and disease resistant and deer and heat tolerant. There is no need for pruning unless you want to maintain a certain size or shape. Prune after blooming to avoid bloom loss. The Chinese Snowball Bush is easy to maintain. It is drought tolerant once established, enjoys full sun to part shade, and is adaptable to just about any soil. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and every spring for optimal growth and best blooms!

Show off your gardening skills with the Chinese Snowball Bush! We won't tell anyone how easy it was to care for this low maintenance beauty! Order yours today!

How To Care

Plant in full sun to part shade. While the Chinese Snowball Bush does well in some shade, about 6 hours of sun is ideal for best blooming. A well-draining and slightly acidic soil is ideal, but this hardy viburnum is adaptable to most soils. Water deeply 2 to 3 times per week when newly planted and during establishment. While, the Snowball Bush is drought tolerant, it will perform best when watered if the soil becomes dry. Feed with a balanced, slow release fertilizer in early spring for best growth. If your soil is deficient, fertilize in early fall as well. Prune after summer bloom if desired. This Viburnum does not require pruning to thrive, but tolerates pruning well. This large shrub is easy to maintain, and is disease, pest resistant and heat and deer tolerant.

Landscape Ideas

The Chinese Snowball Bush is stunning as a focal in mixed beds and cottage gardens. Try this hardy viburnum in a formal hedge or screen. Plant 8 or 9 feet apart for a dense screen. The Chinese Snowball is a striking anchor plant to soften the corners of your home. This large shrub is the perfect focal plant for small yards instead of a tree. In fact you can prune this Snowball bush into a treeform. It tolerates heavy pruning so go ahead and experiment with hedges, shaped shrubs, and treeforms! This bush will soften any landscape with its lovely, lush blooms.

Hoping to Renew Sad Bush

The transit was efficient and no problems there. The Chinese Snowball Bush was something that I could not find locally, and I really wanted one for our new home. This specimen arrived with very few leaves, and the structure of the plant is poor; after it recovers from the trauma of its early life and starts to flourish, it will need pruning to remove major defects such as branches crossing through the center of the plant. However, with my gardening skills I am confident that I will be able to turn this sad bush into a glad bush within two growing seasons. I love Snowball bushes!

It is still in dormant stage but is a great overall shape.

I was concerned that it might already be leafed out and concerned that we might have a few freezing spells before Spring. Came quickly and packaged superbly. Can’t wait until it warms up to see how it performs for me.
