If you are a fan of American Cranberrybush (Viburnum opulus var. americanum) but don’t want an 8-12 ft tall bush, this dwarf cultivar may be right for you. Growing to 4-6 ft tall, ‘Compacta’ (sometimes labeled and sold as ‘Bailey’s Compact’) delivers the flower and fruit displays expected from American Cranberrybush. The fall color can be a disappointing yellow rather than the good red fall color of American Cranberrybush.
