Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa)

Habitat: Forests, Wet Areas

Grows in Sun/Shade: Sun

Flowers: White

Attributes: Pollinator friendly, Walnut tolerant

Height: 1 m (3 ft)

  

Glossy, pendulous clusters of black fruit suspended before lustrous green leaves are pleasing when viewed up close in summer, but the flower display and fall color are excellent even from afar. Seemingly phased by nothing, this shrub will tolerate anything thrown at it: swampy ground, dry sandy soil, drought, salt, and pollution.
