Growing Aronia (Chokeberry)

Latin Name Pronunciation: ah-roe'-nee-ah

Easy to grow in full sun or partial shade and almost any sort of soil (even moisture is required in the South and West). Fruit is more abundant and fall color is richer in full sun. Plants tend to sucker from the base, spreading slowly to form a multistemmed clump. Prune as necessary either in late winter or after plants bloom in spring; be aware that pruning at either time will reduce fruit production in fall.
