Compact with lustrous foliage, the chokeberry is attractive in borders and naturalized areas.

Buy Fast Growing Red Chokeberry Bush

This hardy bush is an excellent addition to hedges and naturalized areas throughout the country. In late April or early May, these long branches are covered with clusters of showy white blossoms that stand out against the shiny dark green leaves of the Red Chokeberry Bush. Lasting about 1 to 2 weeks, these flowers fade away, but the shrub does not lose its splendor. Only requiring a medium amount of water, the plant grows quickly and can survive through dry or rainy spells, and its tall size and thick green leaves continue to impress. As fall arrives, these leaves change color turning bright, crimson red mixed with splashes of purple.

Affordable Red Chokeberry Bush For Every Landscape

Also, around September, the plant starts producing red fruit in the form of small berries clustered throughout the branches. These provide food for birds and other animals from September until the end of the year. While technically edible by humans, the berries are incredibly tart and not typically eaten. Landscapers often use this shrub around the edges of properties and to stabilize bank edges. With these simple requirements, the Red Chokeberry Bush multiplies and has few problems. It is an excellent choice for most yards as homeowners love the low maintenance requirements. Plus, few other shrubs put on a multi-seasonal show as this one does.

 

Red Chokeberry Plant 

Red chokeberry, or Aronia arbutifolia, is a shrub belonging to the Rosaceae, or rose, family. The red chokeberry produces small round tart red fruits in late summer, which are edible to birds, mammals, and humans. Never invasive, red chokeberry is native to the east coast and is a valuable resource to wildlife from Pennsylvania to Florida. In the spring, each plant displays an abundance of clusters of small white fragrant flowers that attract pollinators. During autumn, each leaf transforms into a shade of brilliant red or maroon. The red chokeberry plant is among the last to hold berries on its branches in the winter, providing both forage and beauty. Each plant can range from 5 to 10' tall and 3 to 6' wide, with an upright vase-like growth pattern. Red chokeberry can thrive in average to heavy clay soils with little to profuse moisture and will transplant without a problem. Because red chokeberry is drought tolerant, it is suitable for xeriscaping or a rain garden. Able to grow from USDA Hardiness Zones 4a to 8b, red chokeberry withstands both cold and warm climates. This shrub is adapted to flourish in a wide soil pH range, from acidic to neutral (5.6 to 7.5). Though its dark green, glossy foliage grows well in partial shade, red chokeberry produces its berries best when exposed to 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day.
