Four Seasons of Interest: The Autumn Magic Chokeberry

Your yard will never be boring with a couple of Autumn Magic Black Chokeberry shrubs (Aronia melanocarpa 'Autumn Magic'). This shrub is prized for its beauty and use as a four-season ornamental. It even impresses many with its edible berries.

Let's start with what the Autumn Magic Black Chokeberry offers in May! This lovely deciduous shrub blooms with white flowers each spring. These fragrant blooms signal the coming of its deep purplish-black berries that adorn this plant all season long. Who feasts on these berries? Well, birds gobble them up.

Well-known as a Superfruit, tannin-rich Aronia berries do require a bit of sweetener to bring out their best taste. Try as a chutney or sauce on pork and chicken dishes - delicious!

When not in bloom, you can enjoy the Autumn Magic Black Chokeberry's deep green, glossy foliage. When fall arrives, these glossy leaves transform into a fiery red and purple. These leaves will keep your garden captivating as fall transitions into winter.

To make the most of this dramatic shrub, plant several along your driveway or house for a dynamic border. You can even plant one as a focal point in your garden or yard. Some gardeners enjoy this vibrant shrub so much, they use it as a hedge or a way to shield other plants from harsh winds.

Autumn Magic Black Chokeberry grows evenly upward and outward. It keeps its height and tends to taper-in toward the ground.

Chokeberry is fast-growing, so it won't keep you in suspense. You can enjoy its uniqueness right away. Trim or prune it as you like. For best performance, plant it in full sun. It's not picky when it comes to soil, though.

If you like a plant that doubles as a conversation piece, this ornamental shrub with four seasons of interest will give you an excuse to chat. With edible fruit and vibrant fall foliage, you can't go wrong with an Autumn Magic Black Chokeberry so order yours today!
