American Cranberry Bush
American Cranberry Bush used as a hedge.
This is an excellent deciduous shrub for screening up to 10 to 12 ft. high. It grows
to a width of 8 ft. with very dense growth of up to 3 feet per year in full sun
or part shade. The American Cranberry Bush has showy white flowers in spring followed
by red berries in fall and winter. These berries hang through mid winter, making
excellent bird feed. This shrub has very few insect problems and prefers good, well-drained
soil. For best growth, provide supplemental water during drought periods. For a
solid screen, plant bushes 2 to 3 ft. apart.
