About the High Bush Cranberry
Highbush Cranberry has attractive flowers and fruit, and brilliantly colored foliage in the fall. It can be distinguished from other native Viburnums by its wider palmately lobed leaves that are more mitten shaped than V. trilobum. It is one of the most sought after shrubs for the wildlife gardener to attract birds to their garden. The tart berries may be enjoyed by both people and wildlife. It grows in moist woods, forest edges, rocky slopes, along streams, and in swamps and is found across much of North America.
