Native to the eastern U.S., becoming more common as one moves more northward and eastward, Black Chokeberry (Photinia melanocarpa, aka Aronia melanocarpa) is also native to Northern VA, where I live.
Its excellent fall color and dark berries make it desirable for any landscape.
The berries are not poisonous, but bitter to the taste, hence the name. However, they are touted for their health benefits and can be made into teas, pies, jams and jellies.
Location: North Chagrin Reservation, OH.
