This plant may not thrive in your area
Easy-growing yet super elegant, the Japanese Snowball Bush is known for its full white blooms and vibrant green foliage that welcome spring. The Snowball's flowers emerge a striking lime-green in late spring and gradually turn to snowy-white in mid-May, retaining their color for several weeks at a time.
The blooms are reminiscent of brilliant white pom-poms, reaching up to 8 inches in width. A relative of the honeysuckle, the Japanese Snowball's clusters resemble Hydrangea blooms but are even easier to grow, lasting for weeks at a time without hassle.
In fact, this particular variety will provide a longer and more profuse blooming season than other plants in its family. But it's easy to grow, able to be trimmed to any size or shape, and thrives wherever it's planted, from shrubs and hedges to borders and beyond. The Japanese Snowball Bush can even be trained as a tree.
Blooming on both old and new wood, this Viburnum withstands tough conditions and outlasts the competition. The Japanese Viburnum is an extremely hardy variety that is resistant to bacterial leaf spot and powdery mildew too, unlike its relatives.
Best of all is the fact that we plant, grow and ship your Japanese Snowball with care. Once your Japanese Snowball arrives at your door, it's already got a healthy root system and better branching that anything found at local big-box retailers.

1. Planting: The Japanese Snowball Bush will perform well in either full sun or partial shade (about 3 to 6 hours of sunlight per day), depending on your climate. In warmer climates, provide the plant with afternoon shade. In cooler areas, it can take full sun.
Dig a hole that is three times the width of the container (the root ball) and just as deep. Place the plant in the hole so that the top of the rootball is even with the soil level. Backfill your soil and water lightly every few inches as you backfill to remove any air pockets. Finally, mulch the surrounding area once planting is complete.
If you're container-planting, select a pot that's about twice the width of your Snowball's shipped container, use organic soil, and place your plant in proper sunlight.
2. Watering: Water your Snowball after the soil has had the chance to dry out about 2 inches down. The frequency will vary depending on your climate and weather conditions. They will need more water during times of excessive heat and drought. However, your Snowball will not need to be watered after it goes dormant for the season or after the ground freezes.
3. Fertilizing: Generally, the Snowball will not need a lot of additional fertilizer. To increase blooming, you can fertilize in the early spring with a high phosphorus fertilizer like bone meal or bloom booster. Look for the middle number of the formula to be higher than the others for the added boost of phosphorous (example: 5-25-10).
4. Pruning: Prune the snowball immediately after flowering for shaping and to remove damaged or dead limbs.
