I already have experience with the other 2 Aronias, Ground Hog and Mound, and was looking forward to getting some Hedgers. Finally they came and its been the same easy, unfussy, beautiful plant which keeps flowering and growing no matter the weather or if I've forgotten to water it! I have very wet clay on a mountain with a lot of wind and these adapted quickly and extremely well (zone 6a). I must add I've been growing full-size Aronia shrubs for 5yrs so I knew the smaller versions would work, but PW has surpassed my expectations with these new offerings.
