The National Audubon Society presents a new line of native plants and trees that will help birds and wildlife thrive in your area! One flowering bird feeder you’ll love is the Audubon® American Highbush Cranberrybush Viburnum (Viburnum trilobum)! A Wildlife Shrub provides both 4-season interest and an edible harvest for you and your winged friends!

Round, flat flower heads of tiny, fizzy white florets draw pollinators galore! Giving way to clusters of glossy red berries that decoratively dangle from the bush in autumn. Cranberrybush by name only, it’s not a true Cranberry Bush, though it does have similar-looking, succulent red fruits. Like cranberries, they are high in vitamin C, but they’re sour, and taste much better in jellies and sauces.

The lobed, dark green leaves are reminiscent of maple leaves and contribute to the Cranberrybush's full, vibrant appearance. Its spreading nature and dense foliage create a rounded mound that transitions to purplish-red foliage in Autumn.

Planting and Application:

Cranberrybush are lovely specimen plants and effective in small masses and borders. Create a wonderful privacy hedge or screening shelterbelt, or allow them to form thickets. Planted in groups or en masse for shelter and cover for wildlife!

Attracting birds and many caterpillars that the Cranberrybush plays Host Plant for, such as the Spring Azure butterfly and Hummingbird Clearwing Moth.
