Project Description

GROUND HOG™ Aronia

Aronia melanocarpa ‘UCONNAM012’ USPPAF

Introduced by Spring Meadow Nursery and Proven Winners® ColorChoice®
Hybridized at the University Conneticut by Dr. Mark Brand

The ideal landscape groundcover, filling in difficult spaces such as parking lot beds, slopes, or anywhere mowing would be difficult or undesirable. This dwarf aronia naturally grows as a thick, dense mat, eliminating the need for weeding and mulching as well. Glossy foliage, white spring flowers, dark purple berries in late summer, and autumn foliage in hues of brilliant orange-red make this native plant as showy as it is adaptable.

Available as 2 ¼-inch and 4-inch containers and Quick Turn liners from Proven Winners (Booth 3049)
