In a Nutshell:
* This red chokeberry cultivar is a deciduous shrub which typically grows slowly to 6-8' tall and is perhaps most noted for its attractive glossy red berries and red fall foliage color.
* The variety Brilliantissima tends to be more compact than the species. It also has more intense fall color, glossier leaves and more abundant fruit production. It is a very worthy landscape shrub!
