Q. Snowballs

I have had 3 snowball bushes planted in the same spot for 2 and half years and they never have bloomed yet. They are about 2 feet tall, full of leaves, nice and full. But every afternoon they are in the shade and they wilt. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Help?

Q. Why does my snowball bush flower but not in “balls”?

I have a well established snowball bush that flowers every year along branches but does not form the typical ball. What could cause this and how do I correct it? It is in full afternoon sun with only a small Hydragnea near it.

The plant is likely getting a smidge too little light, which is making it a bit leggy and causes the flowers to be looser than they should be. If you can thin the surrounding shade a bit, perhaps through selective pruning for nearby trees, this should help it tighten up the flower heads.

Q. Japanese snowball bush

When do you plant them? It’s the end of February and still cold most nights but warm say in60 a lot of days. Except for lately it’s been cold Day time too. So I’m not sure

To be safe you will want to plant when there is not threat of temps in the 40's. This will ensure the survival of the plant. This article will give you more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/viburnum/japanese-snowball-care.htm
