Description

Red Chokeberry is a native shrub that grows 6-10 feet tall and 3-6 feet wide 

The red chokeberry is a native shrub that grows 6-10 feet tall and 3-6 feet wide but tends to sucker and form colonies. The plant has an upright habit with a fibrous root system that can tolerate wet or dry thickets as long as it's in the average moist range of 60%. In full sun, it produces the best fruit production. However, some flowers may still be made when grown in partial shade. It typically grows in a vase-shaped form and forms colonies mainly in Eastern Canada and the United States.

 

 Growth Adaptability

 Red Chokeberries are tolerant of various habitats, from forested to sunny and wet to dry soils. They are known for their adaptability to planting in gardens since they require little care outside of occasional watering and pruning. The shrubs have few pests or diseases but will sometimes experience minor leaf spotting or twig dieback that can be mitigated with some additional care.

 

 Ornamental Nature

 Red Chokeberry is the most abundant fruit of its kind. It has a green and glossy summer, turning orange-red in fall, with bright red pear-shaped berries appearing during this season. The bark seems reddish-brown, adding interest to a winter garden. It also has tart, bitter fruits that can make jams and jellies. Black Chokeberry is smaller and doesn't have edible pectin on one side, so it is not as sweet as Red Chokeberry.

 Red Chokeberry is a perennial shrub in the genus Aronia

 Environmental Benefit

 The Chokeberry plant is a perennial shrub in the genus Aronia, boasting many uses such as fruit, nectar for bees, butterflies, and other insects; flowers for native bee species; ground cover in flower beds. Aromas are found at Harvard University's Arnold Arboretum and Maeve Coker's top plant to use because it attracts pollinators.

 

 Finally

 If you want to attract birds in the winter, choose the red chokeberry for its dazzling red leaves and berries. It flowers earlier than usual, too - a perfect fall display. Your Aronia arbutifolia shrub is also able to handle salt and pollution. Although it may make your mouth pucker when eaten raw, birds will eat them during tough times of year because they provide some much-needed nutrition.
