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.
