An acquaintance gave me ten small pots of what he said were highbush cranberries, no bog needed. He said he doesn't know anything about them, but wild game like 'em. one has a tag that says viburnum treblum(sp?) First, are these even worth the time to plant? Are the berries any good?

We had one at our old house. It is a good wildlife/bird plant...we didn't know it could be used for jam or jellies; wished I had.

It doesn't need a bog, but doesn't like really dry either. Our was a shrub in "average lawn" in a development and did great.

High-Bush Cranberries are sour as heck till they get frosted...

I have a few here...My sister has a few at her place...Hard to kill em once they establish...They do not need a bog, but some wetness helps...There are a few variants...Trilobum is the NorthEastern Variety...

They make great for jam or jelly...

If you plant them nothing might happen. If you do not plant them nothing will happen. How long will it take to invest into the future? Planting 10 plants can not take all that long. If you do plant them and they grow and make lots of cranberries then you can be proud and walk tall. So what do you have to lose? I guess a long story short.......I say....GO FOR IT!!!!!
