Highbush Cranberry vs Western Sandcherry

Viburnum trilobum

Prunus pumila

Highbush Cranberry
Western Sandcherry

Highbush Cranberry produces attractive white flowers in late June and bears edible fruit that matures to a bright red colour in the late summer.

This shrub, native to much of Canada, is fast growing, and its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce to serve with various proteins. Consider buying one for your next home landscaping project.

Sandcherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green - or recessive dark red - foliage and beautiful white blossoms. You and the wildlife will both love its small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover. Sandcherry is also a great pollinizer for plums or Nanking Cherry.
