Aronia melanocarpa Ground Hug

Aronia melanocarpa Ground Hug™ PP31821

Chokeberry - Black

Ground Hug™ Black Chokeberry ('UCONNAM012') was developed in Connecticut by Dr Mark Brand, to answer the need for tough native groundcover shrubs.  Aronia melanocarpa Ground Hug™ stays low while suckering to a wide, densely branched groundcover thicket.  The delicate white spring flowers are followed by glossy black fruit in late summer (an important food source for wildlife).  Then the crowning glory is the vivid orange and red fall foliage.  Because of Ground Hug's™ vigorous spreading habit it would work well as a slope stabilizer. (used to be Ground Hog)
