    Actually, that works. They are "Mountain Cranberry" and the text goes on to talk about *their* cranberries.

    Awkward, but proper.

    This one is actually correct, it's referring to the berries of the Mountain Cranberry plant.

    I agree, actually — "…showy red berries" is a continuation of a sentence, not the start of a new one. If the S in "showy" was capitalized I'd say "Mountain Cranberry's" was incorrect.

    I'd say that the sign is incorrect based on the the cranberries being plural. In my opinion, it should read "Mountain Cranberries'", indicating plural possession.

    Nope, Cranberry shouldn't be plural. The plant is called the Mountain Cranberry.
