Cranberry Viburnum is often found in swampy woods, bogs, and moist low places. It has a dense, rounded and spreading form. The lace-like white flowers have both fertile and sterile florets that that produce cranberry-like berries. The foliage resembles a maple with its three-lobes. The cranberry-like berries are sour, but edible. They can be used to make jams and jellies before the frost causes them to wither. Cranberry viburnum can be used as a shrub border, hedge, or a screen in the landscape. This plant is a favored food source for the Rose Hooktip Moth (pictured above).

Shipping Information

Plant Shipping Carton

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: These boxes can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants supports the United States Postal Service, so your plants will ship via USPS Priority Mail. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
