Multi-season interest! Appealing planted in masses - great for erosion control. This tiny but tough dwarf shrub thrives nearly anywhere. Hundreds of white flowers in spring are followed by black fruit in summer and intense red fall foliage.

Chokeberry handles just about any landscape challenge: wet or dry soils, deer, hot or cold climates! Can be used as a groundcover or lawn substitute. Aronia Low ScapeŽ Mound berries are bitter in flavor until they are ripe; but tend to sweeten after a freeze. Blooms on old wood.

Features to Note:

  • Deer Resistant
  • Hot Dry Site Tolerant
  • Seaside/Salt Tolerant
  • OK in Containers
  • Good for Hedge

Aronia Plant Care:

Very low maintenance. If desired, but not necessary, prune to shape after flowering. Prefers a sunny spot with well-drained soil.
