Red Chokeberry Shrubs for Sale Online
Brilliant Red Chokeberry (Aronia Brillantisima) grows more compact than the norm and is known for its excellent red and purple autumn foliage. In the spring Red Chokeberry is covered in fragrant white flowers.
The flowers are followed by clusters of large, edible dark red berries that stay on the plant through winter. It's a hardy shrub that's easy to grow. It does well in full sun to part shade and is tolerant of most soil types.
Brilliant Red Chokeberry is self-pollinating, so you only need one plant for fruit. Birds are generally the only animals who eat the fruit so it makes great bird attractors. Tart and bitter fruit will cause choking if eaten fresh, hence the common name, but good for jams and jellies.
