Random Passage: "Red Chokeberry (Aronia Arbutifolia) shows to best advantage when growing in moist soil and full sun. It is a native shrub with a wide range, and in cultivation, usually grows over 6 feet tall. It is more conspicuous in fall with its colorful leaves and clusters of red fruits than in spring, when it bears its small white flowers."
