Aronia melanocarpa 'Iroquois Beauty™ Black'

Chokeberry, Iroquois Beauty™

Selected at the Morton Arboretum for its compact habit, with 10-year-old plants reaching just 3' in height and 5' in width. Three-season interest begins with clusters of white flowers in spring, long lasting black berries in summer, followed by wine-red fall color. Great for mass planting, the plant does sucker and will form colonies.  Aronia berries can be eaten fresh, used for baking, jams, juice and wine.
