Like all plants that bloom on last year’s wood, the thing to remember is the best time to prune them in right after they are done blooming.By waiting to prune the branches until the flowers are done, the new growth that forms after pruning still has time to make new flower buds on that growth to make successive flower displays in spring.If the plants become woody with age, you can selectively remove the oldest stems out to the ground allowing the nice young stems to remain healthy and keep on pumping out the flowers. This Snowball Viburnum in some areas may see aphids that may feed on the new growth so do watch for aphids early in the season so the foliage does not become affected. Insecticidal soap or perhaps and insecticide may be necessary to eliminate aphid feeding in some years in some areas. .
