The Red Chokeberry, a versatile deciduous shrub native to North America, offers numerous benefits when incorporated into landscaping designs. With its striking appearance, adaptability, and ecological advantages, this shrub has become a popular choice for residential and commercial landscapes.
The Red Chokeberry features glossy, dark green leaves that change into deep red, orange, and purple during fall.
Clusters of delicate white to pinkish flowers emerge in the spring, adding a touch of elegance to the landscape. These flowers later give way to bright red berries that persist through the winter, providing a pop of color during the colder months.
Landscapers also appreciate its adaptability to various soil types and environmental conditions. It thrives in wet and dry soils, creating it an ideal option for rain gardens or areas prone to occasional flooding. This adaptability makes it suitable for various landscapes, from urban settings to naturalized sites.
Beyond its aesthetic and adaptability, it offers ecological benefits to the landscape. Its dense growth habit provides valuable bird shelter and nesting sites, while the berries serve as a winter food source for various wildlife species. This enhances biodiversity and contributes to a healthy ecosystem within the landscape.

Order your Red Chokeberry at TN Nursery
These were ordered to replace a couple that a rabbit chewed up from my prior shrubs received two years ago. They are all still growing well and I'll be more diligent using deer/rabbit repellent. They will grow pretty much anywhere but thrive in an acidic soil(like blueberries).
The only thing I was not happy with was the shipping date was 2 months later than was stated on my invoice. I would have waited until spring if I'd known it would be so late in the year there was snow on the ground when I planted. But being they are dormant they should be ok hopefully. Please please be accurate and truthful with shipping dates TN!
Both shrubs arrived healthy. Tips trimmed. Roots Were nice on one. A bit limited on the second one but both look healthy enough and hope to see growth in the spring.
Hard to know how well this plant will do since it is sent in dormant state. Delivered later than originally expected which is not typical of this company. However, I have ordered dormant plant that **** "woke" up. Turns out it was ****.
My Chokeberry arrived packaged well with planting instructions. It leafed immediately and has grown almost 12” in just a few weeks.
The chokeberry already had some small green buds when it arrived. Good size, at least 2 feet of stem above the ground line. I soaked it in a full bucket of water for 24+ hours, partly because I didn't have time when it arrive to plant. It's been a couple weeks now, and the plant is coming along nicely -- a bunch of leaves are coming out! It's our first chokeberry, so we are looking forward to trying the fruit.
