Black Chokeberry plant lovers who are interested in planting Black Chokeberry to enhance one's landscape, here are some important 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 Fall and Spring seasons, with an explosion of black fruit in the fall, a 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.
From its species name, melanocarpa, it bears black fruits, features white flowers as well as red fall foliage. Black chokeberry is a tough shrub that has a broad tolerance to some 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 in 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.
In early spring, the shrub has a showy display of white flowers in clusters referred to as corymbs. As the season advances, the leaves change to a deep and glossy green, which makes the shrub brighten as well as increase 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 unappetizing 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 grown in the garden to act as a windbreaker. Black Chokeberry
