Field Notes
We think that we found our species without to much difficlty. During our investigation, we could smell the chilly air and frost, we hear birds chirping and crunchy leaves. We were surprised that we found the American Cranberrybush, because we didn't have many places to look. The one problem that we ran into was that it is getting close to winter so everything had frost over it. This made it harder to compare the plant to the pictures because the plant had lost a lot of leaves.

Unfortunately, you have not found highbush cranberry. The word trilobum in the latin name refers to three lobed leaves, similar to a maple leaf. The leaves on your photo look more like a species of cherry.
