Plant details

Aronia melanocarpa 'Autumn Magic' is a great plant for year round interest in the small garden. In spring, it's covered with attractive clusters of small white blooms, set off perfectly by deep-green waxy foliage. These are followed in summer by black fruits, which last well into winter. The foliage turns a smoky-red, before falling in autumn.

Although it's a slow-growing plant, Aronia melanocarpa 'Autumn Magic' suckers profusely to form a spreading shrub. It will grow happily in a range of soils in full sun or partial shade.

just started growing this bush.
Will give details of bush as it grows.


Where can you buy this from? and what method/s can you use to prevent such a big spread? How long would it take to reach its full size?


Freyxox, I have 30 of these bushes growing which I bought from Thompsom and Morgan over the net.
So far they have been in the ground for 12 months and their growth is slow.
They are about 2ft high at the moment, and the spread is about 2 foot.
Only four showed fruit this year but only about 12 1/4 inch berries.
Will be keeping an eye on them this year.
Will update you on any info I come up with.
