Aronia Arbutifolia is an attractive deciduous native North American shrub with dense foliage and pretty flowers. It will thrive in USDA plant hardiness zones 4 through 9. It grows best in a mixture of sun and shade.
Red chokeberry is a water-loving species that will flourish on the edges of swamps, freshwater marshes, in the woods, and near rivers. Although the shrubs love moist soil, it also requires well-draining soil that will adapt to tolerate arid soils. It is an adaptable species that can grow beautifully even in the most demanding conditions.
The red chokeberry shrub has minimal demands for care. It needs adding fertilizer only twice yearly (spring and fall) and about an inch of weekly watering. You can prune this bush to maintain the lovely vase shape if desired.
Red Chokeberry Is a Lovely, Full Shrub
The shrub reaches a mature height of around 10' and 6' wide. It has a broad top but narrows at the bottom. This formation creates a vase-like silhouette.
Wholesale Nursery suggests this shrub to customers who want a plant with a long season and lovely color. In the earliest part of the season, it has pristine white blossoms--some of the first blooms of spring. The flowers have five small petals and form a cup shape. While small, they tend to form in grand, show-off clusters. Summer brings vibrant green leaves and then shifts its palette to fat orange-red berries in the fall.
The red berries are not fit for human consumption. However, your local wildlife will significantly appreciate the fall and winter nutrition.
