Ground Hug Chokeberry
Ground Hug Chokeberry is a low growing deciduous shrub. This plant is perfect for difficult areas, as a beautiful, low maintenance plant. The plant keeps a nice appearance throughout the spring and summer months with glossy, deep green foliage. In the fall, the shrub has great red leaves. In the springtime, Ground Hug has clusters of tiny white flowers. Following these flowers, berries form. They ripen in the fall, to purple-black in color. The berries are edible, though quite astringent when eaten fresh.

Ground Hug Chokeberry can grow well in full to part sunlight. It does well with average amounts of moisture in well drained soils. It is said to be drought tolerant, once established.
