    Default What is the name of this tree

    Took this photo last summer. I liked the tree/shrub and , although I have never done any gardening I may want to get something like this if it is available. I would like to find out the name. It was about 5 1/2 ft. tall...maybe taller. Pics were taken in early October.

    Looks like a Snowball, which is a large shrub. I will look up the official name later.

    There are tons of varieties out there, all beautiful. Lovely shrub, I was thinking of planting one this summer. Great for cut flowers too, most of the types can get quite large, so leave some space. People use to purchase the tiny shrubs and give them as a plant for Mothers Day. I kept hoping someone would get me one so I could plant it LOL

I'm not sure if that is still the case with newer varieties.

    There are different varieties of hydrangea and not all of them can color shift.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I had one of those in my yard when I lived in Walla Walla, WA. We always called it a Snowball shrub.

    My friend says it's a snowball bush but she didn't know the proper name for it. I looked on the internet and it seems there are different shrubs that are known as snowball bushes.

    I just did an internet search -- One of the articles was, "Difference Between Snowball Bush and Hydrangea." Lots of "hits" for both. The name is Snowball Viburnam. The colors for Hydrangea have to do with the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. Otherwise they are white.
