I planted this early spring 2016, and with weekly watering, they survived and thrived in a very dry, hot summer. Love these little beauties. Can't wait to see them grow in the next few years. Color and flowers are perfect.

- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 12 - 24 Inches
Low-growing groundcover shrub, providing beauty from spring through frost.
Low Scape® Mound aronia is a tough, tolerant, tidy little mound of glossy green foliage. In spring, it's covered in hundreds of dainty white flowers, and in autumn, the leaves turn brilliant red to contrast with dark purple-black fruit. The unique low-growing, mound-shaped habit of this new variety makes it perfect for mass planting as a ground cover or edging plant. Best of all, it thrives almost anywhere: cold climates and hot ones, wet soils and dry ones, sun and part shade. This native shrub will gracefully handle just about any landscape challenge you can throw at it! Available in better garden centers in 2017.
Top three reasons to grow Low Scape® Mound aronia:
- Low-growing, mounded habit, perfect for edging and groundcover
- Tolerates a wide range of growing conditions
- White flowers in spring; Dark purple fruit and brilliant red foliage in fall.
Very easy care. If plant requires pruning, do so after it blooms. May be trimmed to shape as needed.
Aronia's common name, chokeberry, comes from the extremely astringent taste of the fruit.
