Aronia melanocarpa 'Low Scape Mound®'

Black Chokeberry (Low Scape Mound® Aronia)

This is a low-growing, mounding shrub with glossy green foliage which adapts to a wide range of growing conditions.

In spring, it's covered in dainty white flowers, and in autumn, the leaves turn brilliant red to contrast with dark purple-black fruit. The unique low-growing, mound shape makes it a good choice for mass planting as a ground cover or edging plant. It thrives almost anywhere: cold climates and hot ones, wet soils and dry ones, sun and part shade.

Black chokeberry is a host plant for up to 29 species of moths and butterflies. The flowers attract numerous pollinators. Many species of birds and mammals browse the astringent berries after other food sources dwindle in late winter.

  • Low-growing, mounded habit
  • Tolerates a wide range of growing conditions
