Arrived well packaged. I am looking forward to this plant in my garden. I am making a butterfly and bird garden and was I lookilng for a plant that would do well in a wet area. My previous plants did not survive the winter and I am looking forward to these plants surviving and making my garden everything I had hoped for.
Due to the holiday and the virus, my plants arrived 21 days after ordering in perfect order. of course, they are dormant so that helped.
I bought six of these they bring birds to my yard and become a beautiful red color in fall thank you so much
well , they are good looking , tall twigs , what worries me , there's never a lot of roots . Hope to cheer in spring
this is a great product. All mine are doing exceptionally well. Shipped fast packed well I'm in love with my shrubs I've ordered. They look great in my yard.
Excellent. Couldn't ask for better quality or service.
Your packaging is the best of any nursery I deal with. The plants are good size and look sturdy and healthy. I would give you 5 stars if you included planting instructions and kept me updated on when I could expect delivery. That said, any plants I have gotten from you are always superior and you sell things I can't get locally, and that are a good size.
Plants arrived a day early in great condition well packaged.
I only gave 4 stars since I don't know if they will live. The root bag was partially open and some roots were dry but not all. The three plants are around 5 ft tall, ordered two 3-4 ft tall but they are very thin. I'm going to prune them anyway.

The Red Chokeberry Shrub Offers Yearlong Interest
With a height of up to 8 feet and a spread of up to 5 feet, as well as four-season appeal, the red chokeberry shrub (Aronia arbutifolia) is an asset to just about any landscaping situation. That’s especially true for homeowners with boggy soil where little else will grow. Its silhouette is vase-shaped, and it can spread to fill in empty areas.
In the spring, the red chokeberry shrub wears a lacy look, with small, light pink or white flowers covering the entire shrub. In the summer, large quantities of edible berries begin to appear. The berries themselves are large, glossy, and bright red and, after ripening in late summer, last through the fall and often into the winter.
Once autumn comes, it’s the leaves that turn to stand out. That’s when their dark green shiny leaves -- already a standout in spring and summer -- turn a beautiful red.
The fruits of the red chokeberry shrub draw a huge variety of birds in the fall and winter. In addition, you may enjoy making old-fashioned jellies, jams, and pies from the tart fruits.
The Red Chokeberry Shrub Tolerates Many Growing Conditions
The red chokeberry shrub is suited for zones 4 to 8. The shrub is prized for its ability to thrive in a range of growing conditions. Many people choose it for moist to wet areas in full sun to part shade. But it will also grow in drier, shadier corners of your property.
That makes the red chokeberry shrub useful for a number of landscaping needs. Use it as a foundation planting to screen unsightly cement sections or decking posts. Place it on the edge of your property as a decorative boundary marker that also makes use of those low, puddle-prone areas.
If you have a woodland area, the red chokeberry shrub makes an excellent understory planting near the edges of the forest. It’s also a lovely addition to any ponds or streams on your property, on which its ability to naturalize will soon fill in blank spaces and crowd out seeds.
Or set the red chokeberry shrub in the back of a perennial border for a jolt of color over many months, from its early white flowers to its summertime look of red berries and glossy green leaves, to its red fall foliage splendor, and finally, to its wintertime drama of red fruits hanging on bare branches, likely with a bird or two perching there.
Caring for Your Red Chokeberry Shrub
These tough shrubs don’t need much in the way of TLC from you. But pruning them will help you manage their spread. Cut away any side shoots in the late spring after their flowers have fallen. Mulch the area to keep the area moist and to keep competing weeds down when the plant is younger.
Beyond that, you won’t have to do much at all for the red chokeberry shrub, which rarely suffers from insect pests or plant disease and can tolerate a range of soil and weather conditions.
