Never seen before, what is this wild bush called? I was cycling through a path and this bush with red stalks had these amazing looking snowball-like blooms.

Maybe a Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis). I'm not sure how far north they live.

I agree
Here is the page in our database.
Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis)

Edited to add:
They are supposedly hardy to zone 5a.
