ARONIA PRUNIFOLIA ARON plant

You will receive one rooted plant.

Your plant will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. The plant will be between 4” to 5” in height with well-developed roots. These will be dormant with no leaves during winter.

Leaf-show will vary with the seasons. For instance, during their dormancy of Oct-March, there will be little to no leaf show. During their growing season of April- September, you should expect to see varied leaf-show. During early-late Fall, expect to see varied color changes and some spot patterns (At the end of the growing season, the leaves change color as nutrients are mobilized back into the shoots for growth next spring.) All orders include planting and care instructions.

Aronia Berry Noteworthy Characteristics

Aronia x prunifolia is a hybrid deciduous shrub that is called purple chokeberry (or purple-fruited chokeberry) in recognition of its purple berries. It is considered to be a natural hybrid between Aronia melanocarpa and Aronia arbutifolia. It typically grows slowly to 8-12’ tall. It tends to sucker somewhat like amelanchiers (serviceberries). Clusters (corymbs) of 5-petaled, white (sometimes tinged pink) flowers (1/2” across) appear in spring. Flowers are followed by abundant purple fruits (1/3” diameter) which appear in dense clusters along the branches.

Fruits ripen in late summer and persist throughout fall and well into winter. Obovate to elliptic, dark green leaves (to 3” long) are grayish-green and hairy beneath. Foliage turns wine red in autumn. This hybrid was originally named Aronia prunifolia with a range of Newfoundland to Ontario south to Virginia and Indiana.
