What Is a Chokeberry Bush?

The Chokeberry bush, botanically known as Aronia, is a cold hardy, deciduous shrub! Chokeberries are native to the United States, especially in the Northeast.

Aronia is an excellent pollinator and wildlife plant, as it will attract butterflies and bees, songbirds and wildlife to your property.

Chokeberries can be canned and make healthy fruit drinks. Aronia berries contain very high levels of antioxidants, and research has shown that antioxidants may help reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Get your health on with smoothies; make mead; bake into crisps, cakes and bars, or create savory meat sauces. Freeze them and sell them at farmer's markets!

Where To Use Chokeberry

These gorgeous shrubs are ideal hedges, as foundation plantings, and are very useful when used in rows or en masse plantings. Whether for screening, windbreaks and Snow barriers, or wonderful shelterbelts for wildlife!

To make the most of this dramatic shrub, plant several along your driveway or house for a dynamic border. Naturalize these durable shrubs where you want to control erosion. Define the edge of a sunny slope or embankment.

How to Care For Aronia Shrubs

Chokeberries grow well in Full sunlight, but these adaptable shrubs are moderately tolerant of partial shade. They prefer moist, well-drained soils.

Aronia bushes will do well in a soil pH of 5.6 to 7.5, and they are tolerant to drought, soil compaction, and salt (saline) conditions.

Plants appreciate regular water when young and during fruiting months. Apply a 3-4 inch layer of mulch to help keep the roots insulated and moisture levels in the soil more consistent.

Prune these shrubs when they are dormant and renewal prune every 3-5 years to maintain vigorous fruiting and growth.
