Snowball Bush

We planted a snowball bush 2 years ago. It blooms nicely in early spring, although the blooms are fairly small, but the show doesn’t last long. I’ve seen several other bushes in town that are still blooming into July. What can we do to extend the life of our blooms?

Several plants go by the common name of snowball bush. The most common spring blooming snowball bushes are the viburnums. Some have round white flowers that look like snowballs while others have flatter flowers with a lacey appearance. The spring blooms fade before or as spring gives way to summer. The white flowered hydrangea is also called snowball bush. It produces much larger rounded flowers in the summer. Take a closer look and you may discover your neighbors are growing hydrangeas.
