Aronia arbutifolia, commonly known as red chokeberry, is an attractive deciduous shrub that is perfect for adding color and interest to your garden.



This plant thrives in well-drained, acidic soils, making it a great addition to gardens with these conditions.



It prefers full sun to partial shade, making it versatile for various garden settings.



Red chokeberry grows to a moderate size, reaching heights of 6 to 10 feet and a spread of 3 to 5 feet, making it ideal for hedges or as a standalone specimen.



Its beautiful white clusters of flowers bloom in late spring to early summer, giving way to red berries in the fall that add a burst of color to the landscape.



For companion plants, consider pairing red chokeberry with native grasses, such as little bluestem, or other shrubs like inkberry and winterberry. Additionally, it serves as a larval host for various butterflies and moths, making it a valuable addition to a pollinator garden. With its ornamental features and wildlife benefits, Aronia arbutifolia is a must-have for any garden.
