There is a shrub (word used loosely) here in Minnesota that all the natives call a Snowball Bush or a Minnesota Snowball.
This was a photo back on May 23 2015. It was in bud.
This towering shrub began as a little stick back around 2000 or maybe 2001.
Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ or Minnesota Snowball. A very old plant…the settlers must have carted it to Minnesota. It is a Zone 3 plant/shrub. It can withstand Minnesota winters and droughts…which is a good thing as I never water it.
This year was a good year for blooms. Perhaps it was the dry winter…it figured it better bloom before it croaked. Photos taken on June 4 2015.
As you can see it is quite tall…I will guess it is nine feet tall. I should trim it back some after it is done blooming. Sometimes the flowers are used as cut flowers but I will just enjoy them on the tree.
Often times this plant gets all confused with the Hydrangeas like ‘Annabelle’ who blooms in late July or early August here in Minnesota.
So now you have seen a Minnesota Snowball in June.
