Highbush Cranberry vs Green Alder

Viburnum trilobum

Alnus crispa

Highbush Cranberry
Green Alder

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.

Green Alder is a cold hardy, native shrub. It is often planted on infertile sites so it can fix nitrogen from the air and improve the soil.

Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.
