GROUND HOG™ BLACK CHOKEBERRY

Aronia melanocarpa 'UCONNNAM012'
PPAF Plant propagation prohibited

Breeder
Buy Ground Hog™ Black Chokeberry online. This is the ideal landscape groundcover, as it fills in difficult spaces such as parking lot beds, slopes, or anywhere mowing would be difficult or undesirable. This dwarf aronia naturally grows as a thick, dense mat, eliminating the need for weeding and mulching as well. Glossy foliage, white spring flowers, dark purple berries in late summer, and autumn foliage in hues of brilliant orange-red make this native plant as showy as it is adaptable. Developed by Dr. Mark Brand at the University of Connecticut.
