Red Chokeberry - Aronia arbutifolia - is a robust, reliable plant for sale that provides interest throughout the year and enhances the overall appeal of your garden.

Eastern North America is home to this deciduous, multi-stemmed plant, which grows in moist and dry thickets. Its name is derived due to the acidic and sour berries that, although practically edible, are still so astringent that they induce choking in people who attempt to consume them.

Spring brings many white or mild pink groups of flowers to the branches. With its shiny deep green foliage turning blazing red in the autumn, this plant is sometimes likened to the more showy Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus) in appearance. These 1.5 to 3.5 inched leaves are oblong, obovate, or elliptical. The uppermost surface usually incorporates a variety of tones, from lustrous medium to deep green. While the fuzzy leaves on the underside are paler in color, having a grey-green cast. 

Late summer brings numerous bunches of red berries, which last during the autumn and winter. They offer a splash of color to the winter scenery, complementing the reddish-brown, peeling bark. This shrub may be helpful if you wish to draw birds to your yard during the winter months. Although the berries are relatively sour in their natural condition, birds will consume them over the winter months once food becomes scarcer.

Any landscape with red chokeberry will have a high level of wildlife potential. It grows in large colonies and is ideal for organic planting projects. The blossoms attract various local pollinators, including bees and butterflies, who feed on the plant's nectar and pollen in the springtime. Furthermore, in addition to a broad range of overwintering songbirds, the spectacular fruit also serves as a rich food source for various migratory birds.

It is a plant that can withstand severe drought conditions. Moreover, it can endure salt and pollution, which means it is likely to thrive even in urban environments. Growing in a vase-shaped structure, it may reach heights of 6 to 10 feet and widths of 3 to 6 feet; however, it tends to sucker and create colonies.
