Sounds like a water stress problem to me. Generally snowball bushes are insect and disease free. It might be that the soil is not draining well, or that your snowball bush is not getting adequate water. If the soil remains saturated for long periods of time, root rot can develop. The only way you'll know for sure is to dig down near the roots of the plant. Healthy roots will be creamy white inside; dead or diseased roots will be rusty brown or black. Hope this information helps you determine just what the problem might be.
