Viburnum trilobum 'Bailey Compact'

An excellent compact, rounded form of American cranberry growing 5-6' tall and wide.  Discovered at Bailey Nurseries in Minnesota by Pat Perkins.  Beautiful green lobed foliage turns a deep red in the fall.  Flowers and fruit are typical of the species but are sparse and should not be the primary consideration for planting.
