Aronia (Photinia) melanocarpa (black chokeberry)

black chokeberry (2 gal, 2-3'; 3 gal, 3-4')

The glossy, inky black fruit of black chokeberry paired against the shrub’s red fall foliage is the highlight of this shrub. Black chokeberry looks best when massed in borders. It is a relatively small, deciduous shrub, adapted to a range of soils as long as they are well-drained. It produces white flowers in mid-spring. The best flower and fruit displays occur in full sun to partial shade. Black chokeberry is an easy plant that requires little pruning.
