Viburnum opulus (trilobum)

Common name: American Cranberry

Native plant

White flowers bloom in late May. Fruit is a scarlet-red and is supposedly edible. I’ll let you decide! Birds eat the fruit in late winter, if at all. Does well in good garden soil with full sun to light shade but is not drought-tolerant.
