Viking Aronia Berry

Beautiful flowers and berries that birds love
A bushy, gorgeously-flowered shrub, Viking Aronia Berry offers a host of benefits, from its delicious tart fruit to its stunning spring flowers. Viking Black Chokeberry, also known as Aronia Berry, gets its name from the tangy flavor of its fruit. While eating a handful of fresh chokeberries may not be the tastiest idea, these juicy, black berries are perfect for creating delicious jams and jellies. Plus, the shrubs that bear them bring joy for gardeners and pollinators alike throughout the year! Viking Aronia shows off a bushy form, with oval-shaped leaves that shine in glossy green. The leaves are finely toothed along the edges, adding to their visual appeal. During spring, you'll be treated to charming clusters of white flowers with a hint of pink atop these delightful bushes. Throughout the summer months, the almost-black Aronia berries become a magnet for a variety of beloved birds, including robins, jays, grosbeaks, thrushes, and woodpeckers. As autumn arrives, the leaves transition to an attractive purple-red color, enhancing the beauty of the shrub. This North American native thrives in various environments and can adapt well to damp areas like those found near ponds, streams, and rain gardens. Aronia melanocarpaA. Ready to Load
