Viburnum opulus var. americanum8–12' 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')
