This is the old-fashioned snowball bush that your grandmother and great-grandmother grew! Always a favorite! Late season flowers extend garden color into fall! Lacy white flowers are tinted pale pink as the season progresses.
'Tardiva' is a vigorous, upright, rapidly growing, somewhat coarsely textured, deciduous shrub. The showy, white, sterile flowers are somewhat loosely packed in the panicles and slowly turn purplish pink with age. The much smaller, fluffy, fertile flowers are partially visible beneath the showier, sterile ones.
Larger flower panicles can be obtained by thinning the plants to 5-10 primary shoots. In full bloom, the weight of the flower panicles will typically cause the branches to arch downward. Oval to ovate, serrate, dark green, leaves (to 6" long) with undistinguished, yellow to purple-tinged fall color.
