Red Chokeberry - Photinia pyrifolia

The Red Chokeberry bush is named for its bright red berries. At maturity, it can reach a height between 6 and 8 feet and a width of 3 to 5 feet. This plant can prosper in sun, shade, or partial shade and thrives in average or well-drained soil. It can survive in any soil condition though. Between late April and early May, the bush will be covered in snow white flowers. After only a couple weeks these flowers are replaced by shiny red and tart berries. This bush requires regular water, and the plant can survive dry spells and rainy ones.
In fall the leaves turn red or purple. 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 ideal 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.
