Brilliantissima Chokeberry

Enjoy three seasons of beauty with this colorful perennial shrub. Brilliantissima is a glorious variety of chokeberry that grows 6-8 feet tall with a 3-4 foot spread. It is ideal for adding vibrant color, tons of seasonal interest and tons of texture to sunny landscapes. In late spring, small white flowers (sometimes pink) appear to cover the shrub, making way for glossy red berries later in the growing season. Fall brings red foliage that really catches they eye. This variety is more compact and boasts larger and more plentiful fruit than its predecessors. Brilliantissima makes a wonderful focal point planting.

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others.
