New! From the Morton Arboretum comes this compact form of chokeberry. A wonderful small spreading shrub with white flowers in spring followed by long lasting edible black berries that you and the birds will fight over! Glossy green leaves in summer turn wine-red in autumn. Once established it is drought tolerant but can handle the other extreme—wet—like a pro. For those of you who are health conscious, the chokeberry has the most antioxidants tested to date: it has triple the amount of antioxidants compared to blueberries. Can be grown in sand or clay.
