Grow Cranberries Without a Water Bog!

Prostrate vining shrub makes an ideal ground cover.
Cranberry is a cold-hardy prostrate vining shrub, 6 inches high and 3 feet wide. It makes a delightful ground cover or cascading vine, boasting small evergreen leaves and creamy pink blooms in early spring. The deep burgundy fruits ripen in fall, just in time for the holiday feasts.

No, you do not grow this delightful Cranberry in a waist-high water bog! Commercial growers do this to aid in harvesting. Instead, plant these shrubs 2 feet apart in full sun to part shade. Zones 2-7. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, MI.

How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?

For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
