Description

The award-winning Low Scape® series of aronia now includes Low Scape Snowfire, the heaviest bloomer yet. WIth a versatile 3-4' height and width, this durable native shrub can be used as a hedge, foundation planting, crowd control, wildlife gardens, just to name a few. Come spring, it's positively snowed-under with white flowers, and that heavy bloom set results in an equally heavy fruit set come late summer/fall. Fall is also when the "fire" part of its name comes into play, when its foliage blazes red and orange.
