The Black Chokeberry Shrub is a must-have for gardeners who want an excellent landscape shrub that grows in all seasons.
This shrub bears white flowers forming clusters after it bears its blue-black colored fruit. Its glossy dark leaves turn a brilliant red, orange, and purple in the fall. It is considered "self-fruitful" and produces berries rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C, and iodine. As a super fruit, the Black Chokeberry can reduce inflammation when eaten. Harvest the berries in late August or early September. The berries are great in smoothies, pressed into juice, dried and frozen for future use in baking, or stewed into a compote. The Black Chokeberry leaves are somewhat small and textured. This shrub is best planted when grouped or planted in borders, open woodland, or small garden areas. It can withstand wet conditions, so it is an excellent choice to place n has a wide ear on the margins of a pond or stream. The Black Chokeberry adapts to its planting habitat and does not need to be restrained. It should be grown in medium moisture, well-drained soil, yet it has a wide soil tolerance, including bug-rich soil. Remove any root suckers to prevent blight and colonial spread during pruning.
Prune your Black Chokeberry Shrub once a month, beginning in March through September. Make sure to cut its stems to encourage berry growth and pollination. Cut off the black chokeberry's suckers close to the ground to control spread. Keep the bottom of the shrub at least 20 inches off of the ground since this shrub grows upward rather than outward as it flowers. The Black Chokeberry will take up to 6 weeks to establish roots in the soil. Water the plant at least 2-4 days per week while rooting, then reduce to one day per week unless the plant gets rain. To ensure soil moisture is accurate, stick your finger at least 3 inches, then water the soil as needed, giving the ground a good soaking but not the leaves.
