Highbush Cranberry Seedling, Zones 2-7


Out of stock


Viburnum opulus var. americanum (also known as viburnum trilobum)

This native plant is actually a viburnum not a true cranberry; however, it’s native status makes it a must in any natural orchard.

The tiny, red fruits are very high in vitamin C and can be eaten raw if you can handle sour. They make an excellent jelly and substitute well for large cranberries from the store. They taste best after a good frost.

The plant can grow 8 to 15 feet tall and 8 to 10 feet wide with a dense, rounded form. Beautiful screening hedge that provides an edible fruit. Plant more than one as the birds are very fond of these as well.

Grows best in well-drained moist soil and once established can handle drought very well.

Beautiful flower show in the spring.
