Caring for Chinese Snowball Bush

Planting

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.

Watering

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.

Fertilizing

Feed with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring for best growth. If your soil is deficient, fertilize in early fall as well.

Maintenance

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.
