Since the tag had "snow" in the name maybe it wasn't "snowball" but rather "snowflake"?




from here: Summer Snowflake Viburnum (Viburnum plicatum tomentosum 'Summer Snowflake' (COPF)) - Monrovia - Summer Snowflake Viburnum (Viburnum plicatum tomentosum 'Summer Snowflake' (COPF))

From the Nurseymans Rule book.

Rule #17: When making tags, if you don't know the name of a plant, just make something up using pretty-sounding words.

FWIW my house came with a bush/small tree known as snowball tree or snowball bush as far as I can figure out. A quick search again now suggests it is still in the Viburnum family, but it should have blooms that form medium round balls, like about baseball size max. (Hydrangeas also form roundish flower clusters but these blooms are usually larger than the ones on the snowball tree.) Clearly yours doesn't have that. Also your leaves are totally different; the ones on mine are somewhat more irregular in the outline.

So yeah, mislabeled methinks.

Here's more where it's called a Snowball Bush. Just another variety of Viburnum as other mentioned.

Ah! I have a bush in my back yard that I just couldn't figure out - the leaves are about the same as in the pictures, but OP or anyone else - the flowers that come on this bush almost look like dogwood blooms, not balls or like a lacecap. White, no odor I can tell, and the flowers really don't last a very long time. Is that viburnum also? I would post a picture but it wouldn't do much good since the blossoms are gone now. Also, a sun bush? Mine is in fairly heavy shade (in the center of the yard and needs to be moved for that reason alone - I cannot figure out how it ended up there!). It blooms quite prolifically but the blooms are short-lived - wonder if it would bloom longer if it were moved? I'm running out of sunny areas...and this thing is enormous.
