Viburnum Spring Red Compact Cranberrybush
Tinges of Spring
The Spring Red Compact Cranberrybush Viburnum, Viburnum trilobum 'Spring Red', is an unusual, dense, compact shrub with a rounded habit. It also can be somewhat upright.
Spring Red is grown for its foliage of a mass of red tinged leaves in the spring which matures to glossy dark green by summer. It turns burgundy in autumn.
The flowers are fragrant and a showy white lace cap in May.
The flowers are followed by a heavy harvest of bright red berries in October or November. Birds and wildlife love them.
The shrub matures to a 5'-6' shrub with a 3'-4' spread. It prefers full sun but will grow in partial sun.
Use this viburnum to make a superb and easy to grow border plant, or can also be grown as an exciting informal hedge.
It does best in moist, well-drained, loamy soils, but will tolerate less than ideal conditions and heavier clay soils.
Spring Red does not tolerate prolonged drought or dense shade.
