Plant Description

American Cranberry Bush grows 8 to 12 feet tall and as wide. In late spring, it has flat-topped clusters of white flowers (not fragrant), followed by clusters of bright red berries in early fall through winter. Although they hold well and can be used for jellies and preserves, they are also enjoyed by birds. Plants can be so heavily laden with berries that the branches may droop almost to the ground. Fall foliage varies from green to yellow, red, and purple. This is a very handsome shrub for sun or light shade in good, well-drained, but moist soil. American Cranberry Bush is an under-used native shrub. Try it for screening, an informal hedge, or maybe along the border of your property. It's choice.
