Chokeberry - Black

Brilliant Fall Color on Compact Shrub

The Black Chokeberry is a deciduous shrub with seasonal color and edible fruit.  Plant one for definition in your garden or several as a low hedge.   

The Chokeberry will provide you with exceptional spring and fall interest, but even when not in bloom or fruit this dainty shrub is sure to please you with its summer foliage. 

Chokeberry leaves are only 1-3 inches long, but have a glossy surface that catches the light with amazing proficiency.  It will clearly stand out amid your other green plantings.   

Your Black Chokeberry will also astound you with its impressive spring display of delicate spring flowers. The clusters of 5-peteled white blooms have subtle pink highlight and appear as tiny bridal bouquets amid the shiny green foliage. 

The flowers are followed by blueberry-like fruit that dangles from the bush in early fall.  

With the advent of autumn, your Chokeberry’s foliage will transform to its resplendent deep purples and reds, brightening even the darkest corner of your autumn landscape.   

Your Black Chokeberry has an upright growing nature reaching a height of 6 feet with an equal spread.  It’s tolerant of almost any conditions, but will fruit best with a high sun location. 

Wildlife tends to save the berries until other available food sources have been exhausted, but do appreciate them in the winter months when food is scarce. 

The berries can be rather tart for humans (as the name implies), but are quite good when a sweetener is added and are known for making good preserves.  

The Black Chokeberry is a lovely ornamental plant for almost any location.  Plant one today and begin reaping its unique benefits.

Colorful plant Review by Long tail
I like the black chokeberry plant but I really do not care for the berries. I think you would have to add sugar to make me like them.
Healthy Review by milo
I purchased a few of the Black Chokeberry bushes when I read about all the health benefits the chokeberry offers. I had fruit in my second year and the bush just continues to get larger and larger. I have actually grown to enjoy the berries.
Excellent in the 3 gallon pots Review by rmiro
I ordered 5 of these in early spring in the 3-gallon pot size. All 5 are thriving here in central MD in clayish soil with full sun. Plants were well packed and arrived healthy, well hydrated, and free of damage. Very pleased with my purchase.
One tough shrub! Review by Dan
I have a mostly shady yard, and planted a wide variety of shrubs 2 years ago that were all suppose to thrive in shady areas with lousy soil. The Aronia has done the best by far, growing and looking healthy! The worst were Clethra, very sickly, sad looking. Will pluck the Clethra next spring for Aronia, for sure!
berries are great Review by Ukrainian girl
I disagree with the description of the berries. They lower blood pressure and make tasty easy preserves mixed with small elongated sour plums that are harvested at the same time as berries. Just add some water and sugar to taste and enjoy.
