Red Chokeberry Aronia arbutifolia


Red Chokeberry: Aronia arbutifolio, the red chokeberry shrub, is a deciduous North American native species that will flourish in the moderately warm USDA growing zones. TN Nursery customers express interest in this shrub for the season-long colors, from the showy white spring flowers to the dark green foliage to the cheerful red berries in the fall.


The red chokeberry shrub is a North American native, low-maintenance species, requiring little more than twice-yearly fertilizer, about an inch of water a week, and occasional trimming to maintain an attractive shape. It prefers a balance of sun and shade.


Red Chokeberry Shrubs Serve as a Refuge for Birds


TN Nursery recommends the red chokeberry to our customers who are avid about bird watching.


Birds find Aronia arbutifolio irresistible. They love the dense canopy, which provides cover from predators--you may get to watch ground-dwelling birds like quails build their nests in the low branches. Later in the season, they will feast on the red fruit, a highly nutritious food source for your feathered friends.


The Beautifully-Shaped Appearance of the Red Chokeberry Shrub


Red chokeberry grows to an average mature height of ten feet and six feet across at its crown. The shrub grows in a vase shape--a narrowed bottom that forms multiple reddish brown twigs and branches and stretches wider at the top.


The lovely leaves are dark green and glossy on the upper side and less vibrant underneath, with an oblong shape. Each leaf measures up to three inches long and under two inches wide. They usually turn red or orange in the fall.


Flowers emerge along the branches in the mid to late spring. The blooms are small but abundant, making a beautiful display. The five-petal blossoms form in attractive clusters; each is about an inch across and forms a delicate cup shape. You will likely see bees and butterflies visit them for the sweet nectar.

    If they can't tell, they shouldn't sell.

    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.

    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.
