Expert Response

Highbush cranberry is a viburnum. They tolerate part shade but prefer full sun. They can live 30 plus years under the right conditions. The websites below give additional information about soil, moisture and sun requirements. Seventy-five percent shade is probably not enough for them to flourish. 1. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/trees-shrubs/viburnum-trilobum/index.html 2. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=c365
