Availability: Out of stock

It's so hard to please everyone! Introducing the fragrant lacecap Spring Green Compact Cranberrybush Viburnum (Viburnum trilobum 'Spring Green') for a fine-textured deciduous shrub that will amaze you with fresh green foliage that resembles maple leaves! The new spring foliage emerges reddish and ages into a glossy dark green. The white flowers are very attractive and somewhat scented delights that are ideal landing pads for bees, butterflies, and even the occasional hummingbird!

The flowers form rings that bloom from the outside in and add romantic finery to the spring garden! Forming mid-sized rounded, upright shrubs, these deciduous shrubs look fantastic anywhere in the sun! Once the flowers fade, you will be delighted by the richly verdant foliage and unique texture, unlike many types of other Viburnum!

Spring Green will produce orange berries which persist into winter and are accented by the orangy red fall leaves! The persistent berries are favorites for birds and wildlife will feed on them all winter. The green tri-lobed leaves will change to a stunning red in autumn. Very cold hardy, these deciduous shrubs thrive in the frigid USDA zones 3 through 6 winters with no problems!

Planting and Application:

Growing Compact Cranberrybush into an excellent low hedge, accent plant, barrier, garden backdrop, or specimen plant! So versatile in the landscape, plant these 5-6 feet-high shrubs along your foundation without worry they will cover your windows! Plant a pair of Spring Green Viburnum on either side of your front steps or front entry, plant astride the entrance of your driveway, or as the lacy treat at the end of a winding pathway!

Rustic, romantic, formal or informal - your garden style is covered with this fantastic deciduous shrub! There is always space for a Compact Cranberrybush Viburnum in any landscape, and it will look terrific in yours as well! Plant hedges for property division and low privacy anywhere in your yard as shelterbelts for songbirds and wildlife without the worry that deer will mow them down each year! If they don't eat all the fruit, the persistent fruit adds color among the winter snow and to indoor/outdoor floral décor!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Cranberrybush Viburnum are hardy natives and the cultivar Spring Green is just as adaptable and hardy as the rest of the family! While it does not tolerate prolonged drought or dense shade, it does best in full sun to partial shade locations with ease! Like other Viburnum varieties, it does best in moist, well-drained, loamy soils, but will tolerate less-than-ideal conditions and heavier clay soils. Careful pruning allows this shrub to maintain its natural shape while encouraging the development of new wood, so only prune right after flowering (though you will remove the ornamental berries in the process). Renewal pruning controls size without removing the fall berries, by cutting out a few largest, oldest limbs every 3-5 years.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Adaptable to Most Well-Drained Soil Types
  • Provide Mulched Beds & Moderate, Regular Moisture
  • Prune After Flowering To Deadhead & Shape Shrub
  • Deer Don't Prefer The Taste & Juglone Resistant

Fragrance, color, and adaptability, the Spring Green Compact Cranberrybush Viburnum is just the right size for your yard! Hurry and order these neighbor, bird, and bee-friendly shrubs from NatureHills.com today and you'll be amazed how you really can please everyone!
