Ground Hug Aronia is a super tough native shrub that naturally grows as a dense groundcover. This unique habit makes it the ideal plant for transforming difficult areas into beautiful, low maintenance plantings. Spring brings a flurry of dainty white flowers nestled among the glossy green foliage; come fall, dark purple berries develop, along with outstanding red foliage. Like our other Aronias, Ground Hug™ is super durable, growing well even in challenging soil and conditions - it's up to your toughest landscape challenges!
