British Columbia Cranberry Plant
- 30 Seeds-
British Columbia Cranberry Bush grows 8 to 12 feet
tall and as wide. In late spring, it has flat-topped clusters of white flowers
(not fragrant), followed by clusters of bright red berries in early fall through
winter. Although they hold well and can be used for jellies and preserves, they
are also enjoyed by birds. Plants can be so heavily laden with berries that the
branches may droop almost to the ground. Fall foliage varies from green to
yellow, red, and purple. This is a very handsome shrub for sun or light shade in
good, well-drained, but moist soil. British Columbia Cranberry Bush is an
under-used native shrub. Try it for screening, an informal hedge, or maybe along
the border of your property
