Viburnum trilobum 'Alfredo'

A compact form of the American cranberry selected at Bailey Nurseries in Minnesota and named after long time employee, Alfredo 'Freddie' Garcia.  Similar to V. trilobum 'Compactum' but with a more dense and slightly broader form.  Upright in habit when young but rounding with age.  Foliage is an attractive bright green.  Flowering is sparse, therefore so is fruiting.  There are reports of heavy flowering and fruiting but I have yet to experience.  Fruits, if produced, are scarlet.  Fall color is an excellent red.  Grows to 5-6'.  Zone 3

USDA Hardiness Zone:
