Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa)

15.75

A better-behaved cousin to red chokeberry, black chokeberry is a 3-6 foot, mound-shaped shrub that offers interest throughout the seasons. Flat-topped clusters of white, five-petaled flowers with pink anthers are followed by blackish-purple berries that persist into winter.  The berries are not eaten by birds, thus adding to its ornamental value in winter.  The glossy, dark green foliage turns crimson-red in fall. It suckers to form thickets providing shelter for birds.  Native to lowlands, bogs, dunes and bluffs, it is a very hardy plant that can tolerate floods as well as dry conditions
