SNOWBALL BUSH - Knowledgebase Question

Question by donnaz123

We have a Snowball Bush that we planted last year. The leaves died off in about Oct, and I cut it back. Leaves are now starting to sprout on the branches. This isn't going to be happening every year is it? I didn't realize this was a bush that lost it's leaves and then came back every year. What do you think?

Yes, a snowball bush is deciduous, even in southern California. In mild winters it may retain its leaves until spring but most years it will lose its leaves in the fall.
