Compact, upright spreading form on this hardy shrub. Small clusters of white spring blooms and glossy, dark-green, oval foliage that turns a brilliant scarlet-red in fall. Glossy, purple-black, ornamental fruit in late summer that carry over into winter, attracting birds. Also called “Glossy Black Chokeberry”. Suckering shrub; great for hedging or mass planting. Tolerates most soil types, and can withstand some wet conditions. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. Prune as necessary while dormant; late winter/early spring is best; suckers or dead branches can be removed anytime.
