Snowball Shrubs…

Our Snowball Shrubs have exploded this week ~ we have four shrubs on our property and love every single inch of them!  When I planted them in 2006, they were just tiny little mail order baby’s.

I planted them closer together than recommended so that the branches would grow together and be just one big mess of a plant ~ they are doing just that.

They are just a massive statement in the landscape right now! But they are beautiful as a cut flower as well!  I couldn’t help but scatter them everywhere in the house!

A few other blooms in the garden today is the fun little hot pink primrose, and a couple of Bearded Iris’s ~

But I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Roses and Peonies that are so close to blooming any day now!

I always do the same thing, planting things too close together.
These snowballs are gorgeous - like hydrangeas on steroids!

Simply beautiful.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I'm assuming the snowballs are viburnums? Several together make a beautiful display.

Gorgeous blossoms. I just purchased a tree form snowball bush last summer so I am anxious to see how big the blossoms will be this year.

that snow ball bush reminds me of my Aunt Ollie she had a huge one and it was always fun to see it in the spring when we would drive down to see her and Uncle John about a 4 hour drive from our house

So beautiful! My grandmother had the most beautiful snowball hydrangeas in her front yard. They're my favorites!

This reminds my of my grandma, she had a beautiful snowball bush in her yard. Yours looks lovely!

I have never been able to find one locally, maybe I should look online too.

Snowball bushes are so big and blousy and lovely. I love your indoor arrangements. Your peony buds are about where mine are. Such an exciting time of year.
