Viburnum - Compact American Cranberrybush

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.


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, lacecap 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.


Compact American Cranberrybush will grow to 6 feet in height with an equal spread.  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).  


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, 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!

Three seasons Review by Dannelle

I am so happy I planted this bush in the front of my house so everyone can see its colors. It is a great looking bush, and I hope to attempt to make jam from the berries sometime.
American Cranberry Bush Review by katt7012

This is a beautiful shrub. I am going to purchase for a hedge at cabin site for the Deer to enjoy. The photo in this picture does not do this marvelous shrub justice as the berries are (juicy clusters) of a deep cranberry color in the fall.

My property had this plant on it when I purchased it years ago and it is still producing nice flowers. I recommend the Compact American Cranberrybush.
