Six-inch wide clusters of showy white flowers bloom from late spring to mid-summer. Translucent red fruits follow and often remain on the shrub through fall, complementing the stunning fall foliage. This arching shrub is a fabulous addition to a wildlife garden, hedgerow or yard. Note: This native shrub is not a true cranberry. The cranberries we eat at Thanksgiving and string at Christmas grow on a plant called Vaccinium macrocarpon.
