USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
12-24” tall x 18-24” wide. A tough and versatile North American native selection, Low Scape® Mound Chokeberry (Aronia) combines all your favorite characteristics of black chokeberry in a low-growing, mounding shrub. Makes a no-fuss groundcover that is excellent for edging beds or stabilizing slopes. Plant in masses among wildlife plantings and enjoy watching birds as they flock to feast on the late summer fruits. Flowers attract a diversity of bee pollinators. Chokeberry fruits are also used to make jams and jellies. Fruits are tart early in the season and take on a sweeter flavor toward autumn. Plants tolerate some of the worst growing conditions, from salt to high heat and drought, to low-lying wet areas. Water well the first season to establish a healthy root system, after which plants will tolerate dry spells.
