Snowball is a shrub favourite in country gardens. It appeals especially to the imaginations of children, who favour the "snow-ball" shaped clumps of flowers. Flowers bloom in May, and are green when they first bloom. Green Maple-like leaves turn yellow in fall. White flowers tinge rose as they fade. This deciduous shrub grows to 12 ft tall and 14 ft wide, making a great specimen, hedge or wind break. This variety of snowball bush is sterile and so doesn't produce fruit. Native to Europe, Africa and Asia.
