Aronia melanocarpa ‘Autumn Magic’

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.
