Aronia Berry : GROUND HUG 1 litre pot


30 in stock

A new Proven Winners® introduction, developed by Dr. Mark Brand at the University of Connecticut. To reconfigure this tough, adaptable, superfruit plant into a groundcover format is nothing short of amazing! But here it is. Ground Hug™ forms a thick, dense mat of glossy foliage, making it ideal for harsh, exposed slopes or difficult industrial spaces. In addition you still get the spring floral display, the intense red-orange fall foliage and best of all, the high powered, purple-black berries. Grows approx. 20-35 cm (8-14") tall and 60-90 cm (2-3') wide.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
