Black Chokeberry, Aronia Melanocarpa Has Something to Offer for Every Season
Black Chokeberry Shrub makes a great addition to any gardening plan. It can grow in full sunlight, but it is relatively tolerant of shade. The chokeberry is indigenous to eastern North America, where it can be found growing in damp woodlands and swamps. It grows well in moist, well-drained soils but has acclimated itself to arid, sandy sites. The black chokeberry is a member of the rose family with the Latin name Aronia melanocarpa. It is cold hardy as far north as USDA Zone 3 and heat tolerant as far south as Zone 8. The shrub usually matures in 5 years and grows from 3 to 6 feet tall. It has something to offer for every season. In the spring, small white flowers form 2 inch clusters that attract bees. The leaves are glossy green in the summer as the fruit starts to form. In the fall, the foliage turns a colorful red color with juicy, purplish-black fruit. As a deciduous shrub, it loses its leaves in the winter.
Black chokeberry, Aronia Melanocarpa Grows well in Moist, Well-Drained Soils
Prairie chickens, ruffed grouse, and sharp-tailed grouse consume the fruit. Humans can eat the berries directly off the bush, but they are astringent, which may make your mouth pucker. The fruit is more commonly used in jam, jelly, wine, syrup, tea, and other food products.
This shrub will not only give your beauty during the Spring and Summer, but during Fall and Autumn, you get to enjoy the mixture of red and yellow leaves. This plant also makes people fall in love with the deep dark purple berries this shrub will produce. The bush gets the perfect height of an average of 4 – 5 feet, just right to go along the fence line and not too full on average. This shrub is 3 – 4 feet wide. Even though this shrub is a slower grower, it’s worth the wait.
