Vaccinium macrocarpon ‘Howes’ – commonly known as Howes Cranberry – is a low-growing, evergreen fruit shrub. The dark green leaves, which turn a beautiful bronze or red in winter, are accompanied by delicate pink flowers in late spring or early summer, which are then followed by a crop of juicy, fiery red cranberries in mid-autumn.

Growing to an ultimate height of 15-30cm and an ultimate spread of 0.5-1m, Vaccinium Macrocarpon ‘Howes’ is an excellent choice for growing in cooler climates thanks to its hardiness. Once ripe, the cranberries are great for making pies, juices, cakes and more.
