An outstanding landscape shrub reaching 3-6’ high and wide. The leaves are larger than the species yet retain the excellent deep green color and magical scarlet autumn display. Spring’s white flower clusters give way to massive crops of oversized fruit that are among the best the genus has to offer for both ornamental and edible qualities. In addition to being excellent for juice and jams the sweet, tart fruit are reported to be enjoyable for fresh eating as well. Current research suggests that this selection may more accurately be classified under a new species, Aronia mitschurinii.
