Aronia Low Scape Hedger® Description

When you need the most durable plant for a hedge, look no further than Low Scape Hedger® aronia (Aronia melanocarpa). This nifty, problem-solving shrub from Proven Winners ColorChoice naturally grows as a narrow, space-saving column, reaching just 3-5' tall. Its size, white spring flowers, and fantastic fall color make it perfect for landscaping around your home, or planting as a screen around an air conditioner. Plus, aronia (also known as chokeberry) is one of the toughest, most tolerant plants around, thriving in all types of climates and soils. Use its formal "stovepipe" habit as an elegant specimen plant, or a handsome hedge - either way, you'll be grateful for its good looks and exceptional ruggedness.

Soil: Not fussy about soil. Aronia is one of the most adaptable shrubs you can grow when it comes to soil preferences.
Light: Full sun to part shade. Can grow in shade, but flowering will be sparse and plant will not provide as much coverage.
Water: average moisture is fine. Tolerates dry and wet conditions.
Spacing: 2-3 feet
Fertilizing: Not required. If more rapid growth is desired, apply a rose fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: Nothing special required, though a 2-3" layer of mulch is beneficial.
Maintenance & pruning: Little pruning is required, but if you do wish to prune, do so immediately after flowering. Unlike other aronia, Low Scape Hedger does not set fruit. A note about deer resistance: aronia are generally considered deer resistance. In our experience, deer often eat the flower buds in late winter/early spring when food supplies get scarce, but then leave the plant alone the rest of the year. This leaves the plant more or less undamaged, except for decreased flowering.
