This native shrub produces attractive white blossoms in late spring followed by large clusters of bright red berries at the end of summer. The foliage is red/purple in the fall.
Height: 2 – 4 m
Width: 2 – 3 m
Growing Conditions: Highbush cranberry does well in damp, slightly acidic soil in full sun to partial shade.
Notes: This shrub is cross-pollinated so plant more than one in close proximity in order for the blossoms and berries to appear. Birds such as ruffed grouse, cedar waxwings, thrushes, robins, cardinals and grosbeaks feed on its fruit and find shelter from predators within its foliage
