Black Chokeberry or Aronia - Deciduous Foundation Small Tree or Large Shrub

Why Black Chokeberry?

Black Chokeberry is a member of the rose family, a deciduous Small Tree or Large Shrub that grows up to 3 to 6 feet tall and is known for its fall colors and berries. Black Chokeberry has several varieties, all slightly different in their appearance. The Small Tree or Large Shrub grows upright and in a rounded shape which is easier to maintain and handle.

The Black Chokeberry is used for ornamental purposes. The green foliage turns red or reddish-purple in the fall, adding to its beauty and giving a glaring contrast to the landscape. The tree also blooms white five-petaled small flowers in the spring.

The flowers give rise to blackish-purple fruit that is extremely juicy and quickly shrivels up after ripening. The wildlife and birds quickly find the fruit and consume them, leaving bare branches and green foliage behind.

Aronia melanocarpa is essential in the wild. Its resistance to harsh temperatures and moderate floods makes it ideal for mass landscaping to prevent erosion and handle windbreaks.

Pollination Information

Pollination of Aronia Bush (Aronia melanocarpa):

Aronia melanocarpa, or Black Chokeberry, is self-fertile, meaning that it does not require cross-pollination from another plant in order to produce fruit. However, having multiple plants in close proximity can lead to increased fruit production. The plant is usually pollinated by bees, flies, and other insects.



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
