Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa) is graced with abundant beautiful white flowers for a few weeks in May. A small native shrub with a vase-like shape, Aronia melanocarpa spreads slowly to form a thicket, providing desirable shelter for a variety of birds. In spring, returning birds feast on the blackish-purple fruits that persist through the winter. Though extremely tart off the bush, the fruit may be used to make tasty jams and jellies. Striking autumn leaf color ranges from orange to burgundy. An excellent wildlife shrub.
