Chokeberry identification

I believe this to be a chokeberry plant. Could someone confirm this? Also, if I wanted to take some to plant in my garden, how can I do this asides from dig up the entire plant? Mid atlantic eastern seaboard

    Anon Aronia and Prunus are both in the rose family but Aronia has fruit that look like they have sphincters. That is deffo Prunus maritima.

      If the berries are red eat and you'll be dead - blue or green pie & ice cream.

        Any close up of the fruit? the leaves look right and the flowers of aronia are indeed white so those things matchup but the fruit has a certain shape to its bottom that these seem to lack but. I can't be sure.

        But the fruit tasted sweet. I just licked it.

    Take a cutting close to a growing tip, then get some rooting hormone from your lawn and garden center.

      I first thought it was beach plum too. But Google image said chokeberry. I’m in NJ so either would make sense.

      >how can I do this asides from dig up the entire plant?
      Take a cutting close to a growing tip, then get some rooting hormone from your lawn and garden center.

      Is this a preferred method or am I better off digging up the plant if possible? What is this method called so I can read more about it?

        It’s somewhere in atlantic county. I originally thought they were beach plums but the fruit and bush is smaller than I expected and google images led me astray. I’m looking forwarded to picking them. Also would like to plant some in my garden.

        Could anyone give me some more detail information on this? I’m a tourist here and /an and know nothing.

          take cuttings close to the plant with tipped vegetation, get some rooting hormone and stick them into a substrate of your choice. I like to try sand, potting soil and straight water to increase my chances. I also put them in a grow tent, you can get a little greenhouse thing on Amazon for 15 bucks if you want. Remove all but the top leaves and wait. After a few weeks they should have rooted, give the cuttings a little yank and if they hold then you know it worked. You can plant them in clear plastic cups for an easier time spying roots.

          or just dig it up lol might get transplant shock though, and the root system might be deep/big.

            I ate some plums today and I didn’t dead yet so I guess they’re safe. Thanks for the guidance. I’ll try cutting a bunch of tips and see what takes. I want to line up my fence with beach plums. I was planning on buying some but this sounds more fun.

    Armonia, right? I'm used to them being darker than that. Are there no blossoms?

      Aronia, rather. Damn autocorrect.

      Currently there are no blossoms. However, I vaguely remember there being white flowers in the spring. I believe Arminia is another term for chokeberry. I’m hoping to be able to harvest the fruit and not poison myself with an unknown fruit.
