Dwarf Cranberry Bush
Viburnum opulus 'Nanum'

|Design Ideas||No flowers needed here--this handsome small shrub offers red-tinged new growth and red fall color. And between those times, its mounding habit and clean, lobed leaves are a good foil to flowering shrubs and perennials in the border.|
|Companion Plants||Lilac (Syringa); Peony (Paeonia); Clematis (Clematis); Iris (Iris); Lavender (Lavandula)|
|Care||Tolerant of a wide range of soils; prefers average, loamy, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune annually after flowering.|
