Aronia melanocarpa 'SMNAMPEM' USPP 34,116
Dark glossy green
Adaptable to most any soils, this mid-size Aronia is quite hardy. Dark glossy foliage, white flowers, and black summer fruit, followed by foliage that turns an intense red in the fall. Excellent choice for any garden to support local pollinators and wildlife. The black fruit holds on over the winter and is a wonderful food source for our overwintering birds. Can be used as a low maintenance mass planting. Sun to partial sun. Heat and drought tolerant.
