Growing a Snowball Tree or Viburnum Opulus

Love white snowball bush flowers? Snowball Tree known as Viburnum Opulus is a charming and large deciduous shrub that graces gardens with its delicate, spherical blooms. This is a large dense bush that grows up to 12 feet tall. In Australia, it has captured the hearts of gardeners for its adaptability and stunning aesthetics. It has a drought-tolerant ability, which makes it the best bush for your garden. In today’s blog, we provide essential tips for cultivating the Snowball Tree, including the sought-after Pink Snowball variety.

Choosing the Right Variety for Your Garden

While the classic white Snowball Tree is a perennial favourite, the Pink Snowball Tree variety (Viburnum Opulus 'Roseum') adds a unique touch to gardens in Australia. Its soft pink blooms are a delightful sight in any landscape.

Selecting the Perfect Spot for Your Snowball Tree

  • Ensure the chosen location receives partial to full sunlight, allowing the Snowball Tree to flourish.

  • Well-draining soil is essential for preventing waterlogged roots and ensuring the plant's overall health.

Planting Your Viburnum Opulus

  • Setting the Foundation for Growth

  • Dig a hole twice as wide as and slightly deeper than the root ball of your Snowball Tree.

  • Backfill with well-amended soil and water thoroughly to settle the roots.

Caring for Your Snowball Tree

  • Pruning, Watering, and Feeding

  • Regular watering is crucial, especially during dry spells for maintaining moist soil.

  • Light pruning after flowering helps maintain shape and encourages healthy growth.
