Aronia

(Aronia melanocarpa) Beautiful, very productive and easy to grow, this shrub is bound to become a staple in American backyards, as it has in Eastern Europe, where it is widely used in delicious juices, soft drinks, jams and wine. The handsome, disease resistant bushes have dark green, oval foliage and grow about 5'-6' tall with an equal spread. Charming white spring flowers develop into clusters of glossy, round, violet-black berries with a strong, tart flavor that comes from high flavonoid/anti-oxidant content. Fruit is naturally high in vital vitamins and minerals, and in fall, the foliage changes to striking red. Although Aronia is native to the eastern U.S, the best varieties were bred in Europe. Plants are self-fertile and can be spaced 4-6' apart, or 3' for a hedge. It’s not an “aronia’s conclusion” that this, Goumi and Sea Buckthorn are the most productive fruiting bushes available. Zones 3-9.

LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
