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!

Aronia Growing Guide

Maintenance Notes: 

Aronia is one of the toughest, most durable shrubs, and needs little care. If you wish to prune, the best time is immediately after it blooms. However, be aware that this will remove the potential for any fruit to form.

Wondering about deer resistance? It varies. We have found that in areas with heavy deer or rabbit activity, they may eat the flower buds in early spring, when food supplies are scarce. However, they do not typically continue browsing aronia after that, so are unlikely to cause severe or disfiguring damage to the plant itself.

Fun Facts: 

Aronia's common name, chokeberry, comes from the extremely astringent taste of the fruit.
