This spring we've been discussing various bushes we would like to plant between our house and our neighbor's for some additional privacy. One of the shrubs we read about was a snowball bush. What attracted us to it was its height (up to 12') and large blooms.
Across the street from us is an old abandoned house and one morning I looked out the window and noticed there was a bush with hundreds of white blooms on it.
So the girls and I put our tall boots on and trudged through the thick grass to investigate. The blossoming shrub was crowded by another thorny bush, but I brought home some blooms and realized then it was a snowball bush. The flower clusters are just beautiful.
Since then I've gone back a couple times for more clippings and this afternoon I set an arrangement on our front porch. Despite its nearby home having been neglected, this bush has deep roots and is still growing strong. I'm so glad we've gotten to enjoy its beauty this year.
What are some of your favorite bushes?
