cramp bark

Cramp bark is a deciduous shrub that produces bright red fruits, leaves that resemble maple and huge pom-poms of clustered white flowers that are reminiscent of hydrangea. Native to Asia, Africa and Europe, the plant is now naturalized in North America, where it is often called snowball bush or European cranberry. Note, however, that cramp bark is not a variety of cranberry; it is a member of the honeysuckle family.

In North America, cramp bark was widely used by Native Americans to counter muscle spasms, which explains the herb’s common name. The active compounds in the bark include hydroquinones, astringent tannins and coumarins.
