This shrub prefers wet soil, but it can also tolerate dryer conditions for a short period. Technically, the Aronia melanocarpa belongs to the rose family. This tree is smaller and more symmetrical compared to its cousin, the red chokeberry.
The black chokeberry's fruit is highly edible and is often used for making syrup, jam, and even wine. Since the black chokeberry's fruit grows through the colder winter periods, it's also eaten by nearby birds and local wildlife whenever they need sustenance. Also, smaller animals have been known to use the black chokeberry for shelter during October, November, and December. Midwestern farmers love the Aronia melanocarpa for its hardy nature and year-round growth, and Japanese gardeners have started planting it more and more in recent years.
The Black Chokeberry displays bright-white flowers and deep-green leaves. It's usually not until July or early August that the black chokeberry starts fruiting, and its berries turn a dark purple when ripe. The shrub's fruiting season lasts until the last weeks of January, but its leaves start to change colors as early as September. Typically, this tree takes four and six years to reach full maturity. When fully grown, it stretches up to 10-feet wide.
Overall, this plant is highly durable and easy to care for. It thrives in various soil types and can handle both high and low pH.
