Chokecherry bursts into bloom in late spring, when it is covered in drupes of white, fragrant flowers. The fruit that follows is astringent, bitter, and contains small amounts of cyanide, but is considered edible. This shrub will readily send up suckers and is best situated in a location suited for a dense thicket.
