Answer: Viburnum opulus, also called snowball bush, is a deciduous shrub. In spring it will leaf out and then bloom. After blooming is finished you can prune each stem back a few inches to encourage the development of new shoots, which will bloom the following spring. Once established your viburnum won't need annual fertilizing, but you may fertilize lightly in the spring while it's still young. I think your snowball bush is exhibiting normal behavior. Once the roots are well established, the plant should grow at a moderately fast rate. Enjoy the spring blooms!
