Looking for an ornamental plant that also produces edible fruit? Viburnum opulus, commonly known as the European Cranberrybush, is a deciduous shrub native to Europe and Asia. It boasts a stunning display of flowers, with a ring of white sterile flowers surrounding inconspicuous inner flowers, and bright red fruits in the fall. Growing to 12-15 ft tall, this multi-stemmed shrub prefers moist soil and tolerates high pH. It can be grown as a hedgerow and is a popular component of naturalistic plantings in its native regions. The fruit is mildly toxic but can be used in small quantities to make jelly. Viburnum opulus is also used in traditional medicine to relieve cramps and muscle tightness. In Ukraine and Russia, Viburnum opulus is a national symbol and an important element of their cultural heritage. Grow this beautiful and functional plant in your garden and enjoy its beauty and benefits.
