BCAS Donates Chokeberry Shrubs for DeKorte Park

Red Chokeberry

Many thanks to the Bergen County Audubon Society which yesterday delivered 10 Red Chokeberry  Shrubs (Aronia arbutifolia) that were planted on DeKorte Park’s Lyndhurst Nature Reserve. According to the American Beauties website, the Red Chokeberry “is a tough, easy to grow shrub with four-season appeal. Clusters of white flowers bloom in spring and provide nectar for butterflies and other beneficial insects. The dark green, glossy foliage stays attractive all season before it gives way to a rich orange-red fall color. The bright red berries appear in fall and persist into winter providing food for songbirds and game birds.”
