Highbush Cranberry Viburnum trilobum

Light: Full Sun/Partial Shade

Moisture: Medium, Moist

Soil:  Sand, Loam, Clay

Height: 8–15 ft

Bloom Season:  May, June

Notes: This deciduous shrub has a moderate growth rate of up to three feet per year. Keep it from getting larger than you’d like with an annual pruning each year just after flowering to maintain the present size.

Viburnums flower whether or not pollination occurs. But poor fruiting occurs if there is only one Viburnum available. Two or three shrubs are recommended for ample fruiting.

Benefits pollinators and birds. Is a host plant to numerous butterflies and moths. Berries are a food source for Cedar Waxwing and other birds.
