American Highbush Cranberry – A Medicinal Deciduous Shrub

Why Highbush Cranberry (Viburnum Trilobum)?

Highbush cranberry, scientifically known as Viburnum Trilobum, is a deciduous shrub—species of Viburnum native to northern North America. The bark is a harsh gray color with a scaly appearance, while the stems are arched and quite thick, and the twigs have a coloration that may be described as a reddish-brown. The plant is self-fertile, and the fruits can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce.

The name originates from the red fruits; however, it is not a cranberry but has a visual resemblance to cranberries, possesses a taste comparable to that of cranberries, and matures at the same time of year.

After removing the giant seeds, the fruits may be eaten raw and are tart with a high vitamin C content. Alternatively, they can be prepared into a sauce and served with meat or chicken.

The juice extracted from the berries can be used to treat hypertension and infections of the urinary system, while the bark is a potent antispasmodic that may be used to relieve muscle cramps.

Viburnum trilobum (American Cranberry Bush) is a deciduous shrub that is native to North America.

It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
