Highbush Cranberry vs Russian Almond

Viburnum trilobum

Prunus tenella

Highbush Cranberry
Russian Almond

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.

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets that wildlife will flock to for food and cover. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. Numerous reports suggest the nuts are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

As a low maintenance landscaping tree, this tree is quite popular. Many of our tree farm and garden center customers purchase this and grow them on.
