Chokeberry is a deciduous, cold hardy shrub useful in landscape plantings, showing white flowers in the spring and colorful red foliage and heavy, dark fruit in the fall. Native to the Northeast, chokeberry is tolerant to drought, soil compaction and salt. Turns rich red and orange in autumn, holds its fruit into winter. Spreads readily by suckering. Edible fruit can be canned and make healthy fruit drinks. The fruit and buds are a favorite food of ruffed grouse, turkey, bobwhite, pheasant, cedar waxwing and many others. Light: Full sun to light shade. Soil: Commonly grows in wet areas but can tolerate dry soil. Height: 8 feet, 3-4 feet spread. Zones: 4-9
