    Black Chokeberries X 2

    Posted by Phin Sappenfield on Apr 27 , 2021

    The Black Chokeberries fit into our plan to make our yard more bird friendly (and maybe a little jam for Christmas gifts). This was our first experience with TN. Emails keep us aware of where the process was, plants arrived in a well protected shipping container and while we were cautioned they would still be dormant they look healthy to me. They are in the ground and I'm feeling confident for their successful growth. I'd recommend TN based on our experience..

Description

Black Chokeberry - Aronia melanocarpa is a Flowering Shrub

Black Chokeberry plant lovers interested in planting Black Chokeberry to enhance one's landscape, here are some essential things to know when considering these flowery shrubs.

The Black Chokeberry is an adaptable durable shrub that is native to Minnesota. The Black Chokeberry thrives in both the Fall and Spring seasons, with an explosion of black fruit in the fall; mature height is 3 to 8 feet and a width of 2 to 6 feet. Black Chokeberry shrubs include dark green, fine-toothed leaves of 1-3", along with white, five-petaled flowers with showy pink flowers.

 Black Chokeberry Bears Flowers and Fruit and can add a Colorful Addition to your Garden.

With a species name melanocarpa, it bears black fruits and features white flowers and red fall foliage. Black chokeberry is a thorny shrub with a broad tolerance to soil densities, textures, moisture conditions, and pH levels. It spreads to form a round shape. This shrub grows well in wet and dry locations and areas where the soil is acidic or alkaline. It thrives well in areas whose soil texture is sandy, loam, or clay. It also does well in soil with a pH of 5.1 – 6.5, but it can tolerate higher values. The black chokeberry's growth speed can be described as slow to fast, depending on the prevailing environmental factors.

 The shrub has a showy display of white flowers in clusters referred to as corymbs in early spring. As the season advances, the leaves change to a deep and glossy green, which makes the shrub brighten and increases its appeal during the summer's dog days. From mid to the end of summer, the berries start developing, and within two weeks, the branches are overwhelmed with the fruit clusters. This makes the shrub acquire a purplish-black appearance, and the 1/3 – ½ inch berries continue developing until January. At this time, they are usually distasteful to birds. Black chokeberry bush can be a great addition to your Landscape gardens with careful attention. The shrub can be grown in the Garden to attract bees and birds to it. It can also be built in the Garden to act as a windbreaker. Black Chokeberry

The Black Chokeberry Bush is small in size and can be viewed as a shrub. The shape of the bush resembles a mound that sits upon a short stem. During the spring months, the shrub begins growing white flowers that will turn brighter in the summer months. Blackberries also start growing on the bush during the summer. Once the growing season is over, you'll see that the green leaves turn red or dark purple. 

 You'll usually see the bush growing more in the Chicago area and other northern locations as it tends to thrive in colder environments. Heights can reach about five feet once the shrub has reached maturity. It grows well in full sunlight. The shrub tends to be seen growing best in zones three to eight. It enjoys being in moist soil, and that is slightly acidic. Although the shrub can grow well in areas where there isn't a lot of moisture, it develops darker colors and larger berries in areas where there is more rain. The Black Chokeberry Bush is usually a food source for birds and small animals. It can also provide shade for small animals that seek shelter under its branches.
