Red and More Red
For brilliant red color in the fall, it's hard to beat the red chokeberry (Aronia arbutifolia). Its red fall foliage is augmented by bright red berries. And because the berries are very astringent, they often remain uneaten by wildlife and stay on the plant all winter. Red chokeberry is a good alternative to the euonymus shrub called burning bush, which is considered an invasive species in many parts of the country.
