Low Scape Mound Aronia Petite Shrub

In this post, I share a few details about the low-scape mound Aronia which is a petite shrub.  Check out the photos and video on this post.  I will be sharing more about this landscape because it is a year-round visual treat!

Low Scape Mound Aronia (Petite Shrub)

Below is a photo I took in Mid-September of the Low Scape Mound Aronia in a bed with Invincibelle Mini Mauvette Hydrangea just a few weeks after planting. There will be bulbs added to this garden for spring color.  The Aronia will bloom white in the spring so this will be a treat to share later.

Where do I begin… there are so many reasons I recommend this shrub to most home gardeners.  The Low Scape Mound Aronia is a true problem solver for anyone wanting to dress up a border with mostly sun.  below I will list a few of the important facts about this plant that I appreciate:

  • The Aronia can take sun or part shade
  • This plant is rated for hardiness zones 3-9
  • Aronia hardly needs pruning
  • Tolerates nearly any soil
  • It is a native plant

The Aronia Berry

While we were unloading the plant I noticed little blueberries on the plant.  How cool is that?  I was hoping to find a replacement for my Blue Muffin that never puts off blueberries.   These little berries are one of the richest sources of plant antioxidants, which are said to offer many health-promoting properties. Back in the day, Indians would use this fruit for cold remedies.  Aronia berries, or chokeberries, are small, dark fruits that grow on shrubs of the Rosaceae family. I can’t wait to see this plant during the summer season when the berries will arrive again.  Keep in mind that Aronia berries are very astringent leaving a dry, sandpaper-like feel in your mouth. Therefore, you may not want to eat them on their own like the Goji Berry.  I didn’t find any research on the consumption of these berries so be cautious.

This post wouldn’t be complete without a photo of our RV with this and a few other shrubs strapped to the back.  I am due a video featuring how we travel with different trees, shrubs, and plants from State to State!  Be sure to subscribe to my site and also follow the Creative Adventures for updates.
