Black chokeberry (aronia melanocarpa) starter shrub. An adaptable shrub that gets to around 8ft. Grows in a variety of conditions. Berries are quite tart but can be used for cooking, jellies, jams. Pretty reddish fall color. I have found eastern tiger swallowtail caterpillars on them, but doesn’t appear to be one of their primary hosts.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
