Cramp Bark (Viburnum opulus) bare root tree, organic
Family: Moschatel (Adoxaceae)
Zones 3 to 8
(Highbush Cranberry) Making decorative, snowball-like flowers in the spring, shiny red berries in the summer and brightly colored leaves in the fall, this gorgeous bush can grow to 20 feet with a 15 foot spread. The fresh berries may be made into wine or mead, or cooked down into a lovely sauce or jam, more or less sweet depending on how much sugar is added. The bush itself is used extensively in landscaping, and may be kept trimmed back if space does not allow for full expression. Traditional usage (TWM, NAM): The tea or tincture of the bark, readily stripped from the thinnings in spring and dried, has been used since antiquity to alleviate menstrual cramps, being nontoxic, non-inebriating, universally acceptable and reliable. Tree prefers full sun to part shade and regular garden soil. Bare-root trees should be potted up to gallons or planted to landscape on receipt. Water well. Space at least 15 feet apart.
