House Mimics Nature

Who knew that our Black Chokeberry would match the house so well, or vice versa? The oranges, greens, reds and browns really mimic our colorful face brick.


I haven’t noticed any birds feasting on the berries yet, but it should provide some much-needed food as winter approaches.

    Wow, your chokecherries look so nice. I’m afraid mine 2 yr old plant has died this fall. I had big plans of making chokcherry syrup. I guess I’ll have to see next Spring.

    Thanks stuccohouse! Hope yours recovers. We just planted our this spring, so hopefully it will do nicely over the coming years.
