Aronia melanocarpa

Common name: Black Chokeberry

Native plant

The common name “chokeberry” accurately describes the taste of the berries. Even the birds don’t eat them until late fall! Blooms white in late April/early May. Fruit turns black in August. Fall color is a vibrant red-orange. Its primary habitat is in the swamp, but it will do great in good garden soil. Does best in full to half-day sun.
