Huge, Creamy White Blooms + Purple Fall Foliage

Why Eastern Snowball Bushes?

Beautiful yet super easy-to-grow, the Eastern Snowball Bush is known for its full white blooms and rich green foliage that usher in spring. The Snowball's flowers emerge a striking lime-green in late spring and gradually turn to snowy-white in mid-May, retaining their green color for several weeks before turning to cream and white.

At full maturity, the Eastern Snowball's blooms are like brilliant white pom-poms, reaching up to 8 inches in width. Plus, you get these huge blooms for weeks at a time. The Eastern Snowball's clusters resemble the blooms of the Hydrangea but are even easier to grow.

In fact, this particular variety will provide a longer and more profuse season of blooming than any other plant in its family. But despite its staying power and unbelievable beauty, it couldn't be easier to grow. It can be trimmed to any size or shape, from shrubs and hedges to borders, or even be trained as a tree.

    Planting & Care

    1. Planting: The Eastern Snowball Bush will perform well in either full sun or partial shade (about 3 to 6 hours of sunlight per day), depending on where you are located. 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.

    4. Pruning: Prune the snowball immediately after flowering for shaping and to remove damaged or dead limbs.

    Healthy plant

    I was pleasantly surprised when my snowball bush arrived. It was big and healthy. Planted it, watered it and give it lots of pep talks. Thank you!

    Eastern Snowball Bush review

    We live in upstate NY and ordered 3 of these bushes. They arrived in excellent condition. We planted them the next day. Now, about 2 weeks later, the bushes look very healthy and all have new growth. Can't wait to see the flowers, probably won't see them until next year.

    Eastern Snowball Bush

    Been years since I ordered shrubs online. Guess for 70 bucks a pop I was expecting a bit more bush, one was especially spindly. With that being said i planted them and slow soaked (hose trickle) them for 2 hours each. Hit them with some miracle gro and they're doing great, growing like crazy. A bit smaller than expected but happy heathy bushes.
