Aronia melanocarpa 'UCONNAM165' USPP 28,789; CBRAF

 

This little gem of a shrub was chosen by Proven Winners as their landscape shrub of the year in 2019. Low Scape Mound Aronia, as they call it, is native to North America, can grow is a very diverse climate, and thrive in many soil types. Being deciduous, this dwarf chokeberry makes up for its bare winter by providing beautiful white flower clusters in spring. It's leaves are fast to develop and look almost like a dwarf Hawthorne by summer. Later in the season, the leaves turn a bright red after the berries have formed to provide a treat for the birds. Low Scape Mound can be planted as a bird attracting accent or in mass planting to along a front sidewalk.

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

This Aronia reminds me of Distylium except for the native part. It grows great for us, does not have disease problems, can grow in lots of different soils or moisture levels. I like that it creates berries for the birds and has a variety of changing interest levels throughout each season.
