  • White flowers in May attract loads of pollinators
  • Fragrant flowers
  • Deep red fall color
  • Multi-stemmed, compact habit
  • Purple to black berries in fall and winter
  • Deer resistant
  • Introduced by Chicagoland Grows

Easy to grow Iroquois Beauty™ is a introduction from the Morton Arboretum and was selected for its unique compact habit. 10 year old plants have slowly colonized to 5' wide and 3' tall. Showy white flowers bloom in May and are followed by dark purple to black berries that are enjoyed by birds and humans alike! Chokebery thrive even in the least fertile, roughest landscape spot and the dark green foliage turns a nice deep red in the fall as the weather cools! Deer resistant.
