Question From: LOUISIANA
Q: My snowball viburnum does not have a lot of leaves. It is about 4 years old and has only made a few flowers each year and the leaves are sparse. As far as I can tell it does not seem to have a disease unless its at the roots. It has mulch around it. It gets at least 6 hours of sun. I live in south LA where it humid and hot in summer. It gets water when it does rain much in hot weather. It only makes a few blosooms each year. Any ideas about what is going on?
My guess is lack of water. Snowballs grow best in well drained, organic rich soil. Keeping the soil moist but not soggy. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
