Creamy white flowers bloom in May and later give way to vibrant bright red berries. The foliage of the Viburnum trilobum has gently toothed edges and resembles a maple leaf in shape.

This shrub has a compact, dense, mounded form and will reach 5 to 6 feet tall. The Cranberrybush makes a wonderful hedge or border. This plant can add a burst of color and texture to a mass planting. Birds will flock to this plant to feed on the berries. The Bailey Compact American Cranberrybush grows as a perennial in USDA zones 3 through 8.
Bailey Compact American Cranberrybush Care
Generally very easy to maintain, the Bailey Compact American Cranberrybush needs full sun to partial shade. Fertile, well-drained soil is ideal. Water when the top several inches of the soil are dry. Support new growth by applying a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring.
Do not deadhead the plant since that will reduce berry production. Prune the plant to maintain its shape after the flowers are done blooming.
