Description

The Japanese Snowball Bush is a stunning, large shrub that is adored for its white pom pom flowers in spring. Tons of gorgeous 2 to 3 inch flowers similar to hydrangea bloom for about 2 months. Enjoy the cut flowers in your home for beauty in and out!

The Japanese Snowball 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. This Snowball bush is tough and low maintenance.

Key Features:

  • Tons of white pom pom flower clusters that stun in your landscape.
  • Fruitless. This Snowball bush is not messy and won't present any challenges like invasiveness that fertile varieties do.
  • Large shrub is great for filling in empty spots in your landscape with beauty and grace.

Pro Tip: This big shrub can be trained into a graceful tree form by pruning some of the Lowe'st branches. Keep a few of the largest trunk-like branches for best results.

How To Care

Plant in full sun to part shade. While the Japanese 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 and deer resistant.
