Additional Information: This hardy shrub with dark green leaves is actually not a cranberry at all, though its fruit (drupes) strongly resemble cranberries in appearance and taste. White flowers in spring turn into clusters of bright red berries in August; the berries persist during winter to feed wildlife when other food is scarce. Fruit is very tart, but rich in vitamin C and makes excellent jams, jellies, sauces and syrups. Plant in multiples for ample fruiting.
