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-caps in May.

The flowers are followed by a heavy harvest of bright red berries in October or November. Birds and wildlife love them.

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.

  • Fragrant White Flowers in Spring
  • Red Berries in Autumn
  • Burgundy Foliage in Autumn
