    Features

    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!

    - Low-growing, mounded habit, perfect for edging and groundcover

    • I purchased one during the sale last Summer, and it has performed beyond expectations- no need to water all the time, established quickly, good Fall color. The best feature is the strength- we've had a horrible Winter with the strongest winds and frost on record and this shrub had not one broken branch and it emerged this week full of buds. Outstanding performance, looks and form. Will purchase more.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • Just planted 3 this spring, and so far they have grown and thrived producing beautiful red color for the fall! I am very happy with the hardiness and seasonal interest of these plants. I hope they survive a Midwest winter!

    • I planted this early spring 2016, and with weekly watering, they survived and thrived in a very dry, hot summer. Love these little beauties. Can't wait to see them grow in the next few years. Color and flowers are perfect.
