Low Scape Mound™ Aronia: PP28,789

  • Dainty white flowers in spring
  • Shiny black fruit in fall
  • Brilliant red fall color
  • Rough, tolerant mound of glossy green foliage
  • Thrives in almost any conditions

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!
