Viburnum trilobum

Viburnum trilobum 'Wentworth'

Selected in the early 1900's by Frank Andrews (see V. trilobum 'Andrews') for its heavy fruit set.  Named after the farm of O.E. Wentworth near Lancaster, New Hampshire where the original plant was found.  Yellow-red fruits become a brilliant scarlet-red and are not only very attractive, but good for making preserves.  Fruits are slightly earlier ripening than other trilobums.  Grows 10-12' tall and wide.  May have the best red fall color of any American cranberry.  Zone 3
