Aronia arbutifolia

Common name: Red Chokeberry

Native plant

Native to the Eastern US, this shrub has white flowers which bloom in mid-May and excellent red-orange fall color. Fruit is a vibrant red that stays on most of the winter. Birds don’t seem to eat the berries unless it’s an emergency. I have tried the fruit and think it would have to be a very severe emergency! Massing is the best way to plant this vase-shaped shrub. Prefers wet-mesic sites.
