Highbush Cranberry Seedling Viburnum


Highbush Cranberry Seedling Viburnum

Viburnum opulus var. americanum 8–12' x same. Formerly known as V. trilobum. Also known as Crampbark. Medicinal multi-stemmed native shrub.

Clusters of lovely 4" flat white flowers in May attract beneficial insects. Pendulous bunches of red berries ripen mid-October, popular with dozens of bird species. Fruit is extremely rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and C. Berries can be used for juice, jam, fruit leather and syrups—when boiling them down, don’t let the somewhat unpleasant odor deter you. Bark is one of the most effective anti-spasmodic medicinals. Good for screens and hedges. Not to be confused with low-growing bog cranberry familiar in sauces.

Native to northeast U.S. and Canada. Self-pollinating. Seed sourced from pure stands of americanum. Z2. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)

Additional Information


The Viburnum genus encompasses more than 150 different species, which can range from dense shrubs lush with green foliage to more open and rangy small trees. Viburnums are prized for their multi-season interest, with blossom, berry and foliage varying by species. Flowers attract many butterflies and other early-season pollinators in spring. Ripening berries, some edible for humans, put on a show of color throughout the summer.

All the Viburnums we offer are important wildlife plants, native to eastern North America.
