If you’re looking for a year-round spectacular, look no further than the Red Chokeberry!
In summer, the bright red berries add vibrancy to any garden. Once autumn hits, the leaves turn a brilliant red hue. If planted in partial shade, there will be a mix of crimson and orange leaves. The red berries will survive the winter, and when spring comes, petite and delicate white flowers will bloom. Honestly, the red chokeberry is an incredible showstopper no matter the season. The berries are edible and live up to their namesake. While they’re tart eaten alone, they are a delicious addition to jams and preserves. Decorative and functional, the red chokeberry is necessary for any garden. The Red Chokeberry (Aronia arbutifolia) may be a beautiful low maintenance addition to your landscaping worth considering. This plant sports pink-tinged blooms in the springtime, and shiny green leaves and red berries that will last all winter. In the fall, this hardy plant resembles the Burning Brush (Euonymus alata) and turns a delightful red color.
The Red Chokeberry may be used as a single specimen plant, or as an entire screen.
If planted in clusters, the Red Chokeberry is beautiful in a winter landscape and goes well with ornamental grasses. The red berries are slightly sour, and not high on the preferred food list of scavenging birds. Red Chokeberry is an excellent plant to add to any garden or landscape. The flowers will bloom in a beautiful creamy white and bears fruits that will bring color. In the summertime, the fruits will be a dark red and then change to a dark purple in the Autumn. When selecting plants to enhance your existing landscaping, or even if you are starting from scratch, the Red Chokeberry would be worth your consideration.

Compact with lustrous foliage, the chokeberry is attractive in borders and naturalized areas. Red Chokeberry Bush is a tall, versatile shrub that is full of surprises.
This hardy bush is an excellent addition to hedges and naturalized areas throughout the country. In late April or early May, these long branches are covered with clusters of showy white blossoms that stand out against the shiny dark green leaves of the Red Chokeberry Bush. Lasting about 1 to 2 weeks, these flowers fade away, but the shrub does not lose its splendor. Only requiring a medium amount of water, the plant grows quickly and can survive through dry or rainy spells, and its tall size and thick green leaves continue to impress. As fall arrives, these leaves change color turning bright, crimson red mixed with splashes of purple.
