Description from Possibility Place: One of the finest fall color shows put on by our locally native shrubs. Deep reds and purples in the fall and the clear white flowers that mark the others of this genus it makes a fine addition to yards that tend to be damp for one periods. We recommend that you plant it in sunnier spots of your yard and space it a touch wide so that they don’t get leggy which they tend to do when shaded. At one point it was consider, and still is in some books, as a cross between Aronia melanocarpa and Aronia arbutifolia. It is our opinion that it is its own species do to the certain morphological cues and that it occurs in areas that the other species do not occur. One of a very fine group of shrubs for birds, butterflies and beauty.
