This is the true cranberry which produces quantities of nutritious red berries full of vitamins minerals and antioxidants. Cranberries are one of the best tonics for the urinary tract, helping to relieve water retention and prevent bladder infections. They are also an excellent lymphatic cleanser helping to rid the body of the toxins we are all exposed to in our increasingly toxic world. The small, trailing evergreen shrub requires a very acidic, rich soil and plenty of moisture. In high summer heat, a partly shaded area is recommended and a thick mulch will help keep their roots cool. This is a productive variety commonly grown for fruit production. Slow growing attractive trailing branches will form a mat over time and the leaves have nice fall color. Prefers partial shade. Perennial hardy to zones 4-8.
