I thought winter was over, but we still have snow here in Georgia—but it’s the good kind. The Snowball Viburnum is heavy with dozens and dozens of showy white flowers. Don’t they look like Hydrangea blooms?
I didn’t prune it last year so the shrub is now 10-12 feet high. This is the most flowers I’ve ever seen on it, too. The Snowball viburnum can flourish in in full sun or partial shade, but needs at least 6 hours of sun a day to flower. The only maintenance I give this one is fertilizer. The Snowball Viburnum can be pruned after flowering to control the height or shape it up.
The Snowball Viburnum always makes me think of my Mother. She didn’t have one, but it was one of her favorite plants in my garden. She always looked forward to seeing it bloom every year and enjoyed bouquets of the big white flowers. That makes it a very special plant.
