Aronias are an underutilized native shrub that often forms gentle and fruitful thickets in the wild. Aronias have attractive foliage and white flowers that turn into richly pigmented berries which ripen in mid summer.
The berries are astringent and very low in sugar making them of little interest to pests, but of great nutritional value to us. Being a potent source of antioxidants, they add great value to the diet for very little input. In the driest times we have still yet to see our aronias show drought stress or signs or wilting.
These vigorous plants are easily started from runners. You will receive 2 quality runners with this purchase.
