True I'D by description


I only know them as Old Fashion Snowball bushes but apparently a few different bushes are known by that. They come up like a mop head hydrangea. .. big white blooms, large leaf and hardy in zone 4. I remember these as a small child so they been around a long time and seem common. Does anyone know the real name?

Whenever anyone mentions "snowball bush", what I think of is Viburnum

I just found out a friend has some at one of her rentals that she has up for sale. She said I can have some if it doesn't sell anytime soon. I already have 3 friends that laid claim to a part of what I take... But I will see what I can do RB .

I'm excited because I haven't been able to find them anywhere retail! At my old house I did a lot of landscaping with the newest and coolest introductions. At this house I found I'm drawn to heirloom and old fashioned varieties. Stuff that I remember as a kiddo . I think partly because its an old farm house and partly because I'm getting older.
