Full Description

Brilliant Red Chokeberry (Aronia Brillantisima) is an improved, compact selection noted for its brilliant red fall foliage and larger, more abundant glossy red fruit. Tart and bitter fruit causes choking if eaten fresh, hence the common name, but good for jams and jellies. Birds are generally the only animals who eat the fruit so it makes great bird attractors. Brilliant Red Chokeberry grows more compact than the norm, and is known for it's excellent red and purple autumn foliage. In the spring Brilliant 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.
