Fall Fruit for Photographers and Birds
DP272-2015 Posted late Monday, September 29.
High bush cranberry, Viburnum trilobum. Always a welcome sight in autumn. This is from a couple of years ago.
The name references a casual resemblance to actual cranberries. There is no close botanical connection between the two plants. I have never tasted the berries of this shrub, but I doubt there is any resemblance in the flavors of the true cranberry and the high bush cranberry.
