Black Chokeberry is a hardy Midwest native suited to almost any garden. Offering four seasons of interest, this deciduous shrub looks great year round. In the early spring, dainty white flowers emerge as the glossy green foliage comes to life. Planted along a foundation or backside of a border bed, Chokeberry offers a suitable backdrop to all your summer perennials. In the fall, the black berries appear and cover the plants. Chokeberries are great for eating and high in antioxidants. As summer fades into fall, the dark green foliage shifts to shades of red, orange and yellow, bound to make any fall color lover swoon. Several varieties are on the market, ranging in size from 2' by 2' and up.
Rain gardens, woodland edges, foundations, borders, native gardens, bird gardens and edible landscapes.
