Spreading by seeds and suckers, Chokeberry transplants well, has a moderate growth rate and is very hardy. Plants often form groupings with many stems due to suckering. Attractive in borders and clumps, Chokeberry thrives in moist soil, but will tolerate dry soils in sun or partial shade. It can also be found growing in coastal areas. Chokeberry is much prized for natural landscapes due to its easy care and the popularity of the berries to wildlife. Can tolerate wet soil along ditch banks and other tough spots. Plants flower on older wood. Pollen causes no allergy problems. Plants serve as hosts for butterfly larva.
