Brilliant Foliage and Fruit

Compact American Cranberrybush, Viburnum trilobum 'Alfredo', is a deciduous shrub with bright green foliage. Plant several for a dense screen or hedge along your property line. It has a multi-stemmed, upright spreading habit, and fills out right to the ground (so you won't need to couple it with facer plants).

Your Compact American Cranberrybush has (just as the name implies), a denser, more compact form...but still provides all the color and charm you've come to expect of an American Cranberry.

Four-inch clusters of white, lace-cap flowers bob above the foliage in spring, a delicate welcome to the new season. Your Cranberry's serrated, lobed leaves emerge red-hued, but later transition to bright green for summer. They again change as fall approaches, turning to an appealing purple/red for autumn.

It's an assortment of 3-season color on one plant! As if all this wasn't enough, clusters of red fruit ripen in fall, persisting into winter for even more ornamental interest. The fruit can be used for jellies, jams, chutneys or simply eaten fresh. The birds and wildlife also enjoy them throughout the autumn and winter.

American Cranberrybush is tolerant of soil types and will even thrive in urban pollution. With optimal conditions, it can live up to 40 years. Even though birds and other wildlife will enjoy the dense foliage and fruit of your American Cranberry, more destructive wildlife (such as deer), tend to leave it alone.

Amazing flowers, edible fruit and 3-season foliage color, make Compact American Cranberrybush a truly remarkable shrub for the home landscape. Why not bring one to your yard today!
