9.Highbush cranberry (Viburnum opulus var. Americana). Zones 2 to 7. It can grow up to 15 ft. tall. It has a rounded shape and it gets useful when you want to embellish your privacy screens with something. Flowers and fruits are pleasing to see as the small red fruits remain on the plants for a long period of time, therefore succeeding in brightening the winter landscape.
