Aronia melanocarpa ‘Viking’
at Digging Dog


Aronia melanocarpa ‘Viking’ full sun  partial shade  drought tolerant

Deemed one of the best cultivars in the genus, this small trouble-free European introduction was destined to be an orchard plant until gardeners discovered its innate beauty and various merits. Glimmering amid glossy dark green foliage, abundant scented white flowers are followed by lustrous extra large purplish black berries, which remain throughout the winter as much appreciated fodder for the birds, especially early spring-feeding robins, or make tasty nutritious additions to pies and jellies. ‘Viking’s pleasing deciduous habit ends the season blazing with vivid red autumn leaves, withstands drought plus most pests and seldom needs pruning.

Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 3.
