Black Chokeberry (Aronia prunifolia)
This wetland shrub has dark purple or black berries that birds love. The fruit is also fine for people to eat, though can be bitter raw and is better suited to jams, jellies, wine, juice, or syrup. Its ability to grow in wet soils and sucker also make it a great option for controlling erosion. In autumn, the leaves change to vibrant red, orange and purple tones.
