I believe this is a Chinese Snowball Viburnum (Viburnum macrocephalum). I am interested in planting in my yard, but was curious to know what conditions suit this tree/shrub. What is the ideal sun exposure, soil condition, and time of year to plant?

    Full sun, water in July/August, can be planted now if growing in a pot

    I have three of these snowball bushes in my yard in full sun. I have another one that gets part sun. They are about 12 years old. When I first planted them, their blooms were huge! Now, each time they bloom they are covered in blooms but the blooms are much smaller. Also the leaves don’t look quiet as healthy. They are smaller also. What do I need to do?
