Aronia melanocarpa Low Scape 'Hedger' (Spring Meadow)

Aronia melanocarpa Low Scape® 'Hedger' PP28831

Chokeberry

Low Scape® 'Hedger' Black Chokeberry ('UCONNAM166') is a selection of our native Aronia, chosen for its compact upright habit. In mid spring Low Scape® 'Hedger' produces a quantity of showy white racemes held above the lustrous green foliage. During the summer the dense habit makes a good choice for short hedges. In the fall the leaves turn striking shades of orange and red, brightening up the landscape for a prolonged period before dropping. Fruit production is limited, but native pollinators benefit. Developed by Dr. Mark Brand and Dr. Bryan Connolly of U. Conn.
