Chokeberry - Autumn Magic Black
Autumn Color and Berries
Autumn Magic Black Chokeberry, Aronia melanocarpa 'Autumn Magic', is a 4'-6' shrub with an equal spread.
It has fragrant white flowers in May, followed by large, edible, dark purple-black berries that persist throughout the season. The berries are commonly used to make juice. Birds and wildlife will eat those remaining on the shrub.
The glossy dark green foliage has incredible red and purple fall colors. Since it grows rapidly, you do not have to wait long for it to become an impressive large vase shaped shrub within a year.
It does fine in wet or dry soil, in sun or partial shade, even in poor soils.
This plant makes an excellent specimen shrub, border shrub, or even use for erosion control.
May be pruned to desired size, and can be used for a natural windbreak or snow fence or makes a nice tall hedge when spaced at 5 feet.
