Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa)
Black Chokeberry: Aronia melanocarpa, the black chokeberry shrub, is a deciduous native North American shrub that will thrive in the moderately cool to warm USDA plant hardiness zones. TN Nursery customers love this bush for the season-long colors, from springtime's snow white blossoms flowers to the summer's rich green foliage to autumn's deep purple to black berries.
The black chokeberry is a species with few care requirements. It demands only twice-a-year fertilizer, approximately one inch of water each week, and occasional pruning to maintain a pleasing shape. It prefers a spot that has a mix of both sun and shade.
Black Chokeberry Shrubs Will Become a Neighborhood Wildlife Refuge
TN Nursery recommends the black chokeberry to any gardeners who are avid nature watchers.
Songbirds find Aronia melanocarpa delightful They love the dense canopy, which provides camouflage from their predators--you may get to witness ground-dwelling birds as they build their nests in the lowest branches. In the fall, they will feast on the small purple fruit, a highly nutrient-dense food source for your feathered friends.
The Black Chokeberry Shrub Has a Lovely Shape and Colors
Black chokeberry grows to a pleasant height of ten feet at maturity. The shrub grows in a vase-like shape--narrower at the bottom with red to brown twigs and branches stretching out to six feet across at the top of its crown.
The vibrant dark green leaves are shiny on the tops and dull underneath. They are oval-shaped, and each can be up to three inches long and about two inches wide. They generally turn rust or orange in the fall.
Flowers appear on the branches in the middle of spring and last for several weeks. The blooms are small but prolific, giving a beautiful, snowy appearance. The five-petaled blooms form in enormous, lovely clusters; each flower is only an inch across and forms a petite cup shape. You will probably witness bees and butterflies visiting them for the sweet nectar.

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..
