Aronia melanocarpa Low Scape 'Mound' (Spring Meadow)

Aronia melanocarpa Low Scape® 'Mound' PP28789

Chokeberry

Low Scape® 'Mound' Black Chokeberry ('UCONNAM165') is an unusual Aronia melanocarpa form produced by Drs. Mark Brand and Bryan Connolly of U. Conn.  Low Scape® 'Mound' performs as a groundcover instead of an upright shrub, so it works well as an erosion control plant as well as an edger.  The green spring foliage is topped by lots of attractive white racemes.  The showy flowers are followed by shiny black fruit in late summer, providing important food for wildlife.  The fall color is a deep red, persisting for several weeks.
