  • Appearance: Black chokeberry is a deciduous shrub that typically grows between 3 and 6 feet tall. It has an upright, rounded habit with multiple stems. The leaves are small, oval-shaped, and glossy green, turning shades of red, purple, or bronze in the fall. The shrub produces clusters of small, white or pink flowers in spring, followed by dark purple to black berries in late summer and fall.

  • Habitat and Range: Black chokeberry is native to eastern North America and can be found in various habitats, including wetlands, swamps, and forest edges. It is adaptable to different soil types, including moist or poorly drained soils. Black chokeberry is distributed across different regions of North America, including parts of the United States and Canada.

  • Ornamental Use: Black chokeberry is highly valued for its ornamental qualities and is often cultivated in gardens and landscapes. It offers year-round interest with its spring flowers, dark berries, and attractive fall foliage. The shrub can be used as a specimen plant, in mixed borders, or as a hedge. It is also suitable for erosion control and restoration projects due to its tolerance of wetter conditions.

  • Wildlife Value: The dark berries of black chokeberry are a valuable food source for birds and other wildlife. They persist on the shrub into winter, providing nourishment when other food sources are scarce. The dense growth habit of the shrub also provides cover and nesting sites for birds. Planting black chokeberry can help attract and support a variety of bird species in your garden or landscape.

  • Health Benefits and Culinary Uses: Black chokeberries are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They have gained popularity for their potential health benefits, including supporting immune function and cardiovascular health. While the berries are tart and astringent when consumed fresh, they can be used in various cooked or processed forms, such as in jams, jellies, juices, or baked goods. They are often combined with sweeter fruits or used in recipes that can balance their natural tartness.

  • Black chokeberry, with its ornamental appeal, wildlife value, potential health benefits, and culinary uses, is a versatile and valuable shrub for both natural and cultivated landscapes. Its adaptability to different soil types and wetter conditions make it a resilient choice for gardens, conservation projects, and edible landscapes.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
