Cranberry Viburnum (Viburnum opulus var. americanum)

Found in low lying woods, swamps or wet thickets. This fast growing shrub produces suckers from it's base, that will produce flowers in their second year.  The flat cluster of flowers form a great landing pad for butterflies. In fall,  bright red berries appear in clusters that are edible to birds and humans alike.  Dazzling red replaces the summer green of the maple shaped leaves.  Larval host to Spring Azure.
