Snowball bushes or viburnums have interesting flowers that grow in clusters at the tips of branches. The clusters are made up of several smaller florets and can range in color from white, to pink, to purple.
Some types of these bushes also produce fruit that can be eaten. In general, viburnums do well in zones four through nine and some species thrive from zones two through 11. The soil they grow in can range from acidic to basic and they can grow in full sun or partial shade. These plants are common in the wild but also do well when planted in someone’s garden if the proper steps are taken to make sure they get the right amount of sunlight, water, etc.
Snowball bush care isn’t too complicated if you know what you’re doing.
