Re: [nafex] wet soil, highbush cranberry and archive homework

As I mentioned in another communication sent yesterday, V. trilobum, grows wild in my area, which is zone 3. I agree with you that the taste leaves to be desired, but the appearance is fine and the bush would serve the purpose in a cold region like Minnesota. I also had suggested Elderberry bush which also would survive in the conditions described.

Sorry for the slow response - Hidden Springs Nursery carries a V. trilobum
cultivar "Phillips" which was selected by Elwood Meader.  Very ornamental -
but the flavor always left something to be desired.  Hector Black zone 6
