Red Chokeberry Bush
Red Chokeberry - Photinia pyrifolia
Red chokeberry is a native shrub that is commonly found in the Eastern United States. The plant is easily propagated from seeds, cuttings, or divisions, and has multiseasonal appeal for lawns and gardens.
In landscaping applications, red chokeberry is an ornamental plant that produces small, delicate blossoms in early spring. During summer, the plant has dark green leaves that turn deep red, purple or orange in the autumn. In September, the plant produces its namesake red berries. The bright berries grow in colorful clusters that last until mid-winter. The shrub is also suitable for creating borders for water features, such as ponds, as the plant tolerates wet, boggy conditions well.
Red chokeberry is also suitable for erosion control along embankments and other erosion-prone areas. A red chokeberry is also an excellent option for borders, either alone in a mass planting or as a single addition to mixed shrubs. This versatile thrives in well-drained, moist soil. While red chokeberry tolerates partial shade well, locations with the full sun are ideal for growing shrubs that produce vivid fall foliage and abundant winter berries.
