Plant of the Week: LOW SCAPE MOUND® Aronia

Any Day Now

It can be a little discouraging when bright sunny days are followed by sudden temperature drops and random blasts of snow, but rest assured, spring is crawling its way to us. My daffodils and tulips are starting to sprout, giving me hope that the worst of winter is over and spring flowers will start blooming any day now.  

The Low Down

If you’re looking to add a small plant that makes a big impact on your landscape this spring, look no further than Low Scape Mound® Aronia. This compact native plant is one tough shrub, perfect for low-maintenance mass plantings. 

Low Scape Mound® chokeberry is smaller than other varieties – it’s just 1-2′ tall and wide. This makes it a great size for many landscape uses. (If you need something a little bigger, check out Low Scape Snowfire® Aronia)

Low Scape Mound® shines in your landscape for more than just one season! White flowers cover the plant in the spring, it produces black fruit in summer, and in the fall, its foliage shines bright red and orange.
