Low Scape Hedger® Aronia Care
This is the plant that will grow almost anywhere including a bog area, can be used for erosion issues, heat and salt tolerant, disease resistant and no need to deadhead the flowers when they are done blooming. It is moderately deer resistant. They may nibble the flowers in the spring but leave it alone the rest of the year. Use a slow release fertilizer such as Espoma Plant Tone in the spring and in the fall.
Aronia is hardy from Zone 3a to 9a. The common name for this plant is chokecherry or chokeberry. It gets that name because the fruit is extremely tart but the birds love it.
Low Scape Hedger® Aronia Spacing
When planting ‘Low Scape Hedger’ to use as a hedge or mass planting, they should be planted 3 ft. apart to allow for air flow and growth. If you are planting it in a container a 20 inch container is recommended to allow for root growth. You only need to prune as necessary for a broken branch or to control height. If you must prune you should do so right after blooming since the plant blooms on old wood.
