American Highbush Cranberry (Viburnum opulus L. americanum)

Attractive flowers and foliage and an abundance of bright red drooping berries that last through winter months give American Highbush Cranberry year-round interest. Perhaps no other shrub has been planted more often for wildlife and conservation plantings given its habitat value for birds and animals, edible fruit, pollinator benefits, effectiveness as a living snow fence and ability to stabilize soils in riparian areas.
