Viburnum opulus ‘roseum’  otherwise known as a Snowball Bush…or Minnesota Snowball.

I always enjoy the blooms.

  2. I love your snowball bush. That is such a pretty flower. My first mother-in-law had them all over her yard. Have a great weekend.

  4. Oh, it is so pretty. We bought one bare root this year, but it has struggled.
    Have a good day.

  7. We had a huge snowball bush at the home where I grew up in Small Town KS. Always a beautiful bush.

  9. Is that a type of hydrangea? Nice to have something snowy that you don't have to shovel!

  10. Much nicer than the other 'snowballs' that you get rather a lot of from November to April ;-)

  11. I grew up in Connecticut, and my mother had a huge snowball bush in the front yard (blooms bigger than baseballs) and a huge purple lilac bush in the backyard (the fragrance was heavenly). I wish I could grow them here in Phoenix, but the high heat would cook them.

  15. We have a snowball bush, but last year it was severely pruned, so few "balls" this year. With the hedge that shaded it gone, it should be lovely next year.

  18. I have never heard of this one but you know I am from Iowa. I decided to not move my Iowa wild rose to the new place. Too invasive and it takes years off by dying back.
