Planting Pros Recommend:

You can stop looking now. You've found it! The almost perfect landscape plant! Low Scape Mound® Chokeberry, (Aronia melanocarpa 'UCONNAM165'), is one of the most innovative shrubs we've seen in a while! This dwarf Aronia is everything that you expect in a border or foundation shrub.

From spring to fall it is covered in classic Aronia leaves - big, glossy green and healthy. In the spring it is covered in white flowers that attract butterflies and bees. In the summer the flowers turn to dark black berries that attract birds. In the fall the leaves turn an intense red that transforms the landscape.

Aronia berries produce more antioxidants and phenolic content than blueberries! These tannin-rich berries can be added to smoothies and much more. Both hard-working and super adaptable, Low Scape is a high-performance and showy native edible ornamental!

Planting and Application:

Great for low-maintenance mass planting around your home and garden. Use it to hide foundations or around the base of a large tree. Sculptures look great standing in a sea of Low Scape, too! This Aronia is perfectly sized for containers and edging use. Soften hardscapes with a row at the top of retaining walls. Create low walkway, driveway edging and property definition that can stand up to the harsh hell-strip conditions.

Birds adore the berries and butterflies and bees flock to the flowers! Add these to your wildlife and pollinator gardens for them to enjoy! Tuck into rain gardens and rock gardens alike, or use these tiny shrubs to define your kitchen or vegetable gardens!

  • Pinkish White Blossoms For Pollinators
  • Antioxidant-Rich Edible Black Berries
  • Very Small & Compact Plants
  • Glossy Green Foliage With Incredible Fall Color
  • Hardy & Adaptable

#ProPlantTips for Care:

It is totally cute but tough as nails! It is an American native so it adapts to just about any soil. It is drought tolerant and disease resistant! Adaptable to full sun and part shade, and only prune after flowering to not miss next year's blossoms and that year's fruit!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Tolerates Periodically Wet or Dry Soils
  • Cold-Hardy & Heat Tolerant
  • Prune After Flowering
  • Appreciates Mulch
