Product Details

Product Details

From the UConn breeding program run by Mark Brand and Bryan Connolly, this improved, low-growing form of our native Chokeberry welcomes spring with a profusion of white flowers that turn to nearly black fruit that is a favorite of birds including mockingbirds, warblers, and vireos. The glossy green foliage provides a lovely backdrop for the blooms before changing to red and orange for fall. A Proven Winners® variety. 'UCONNAM165' PP 28,789

This American genus includes 3 species, all of which are grown primarily for their handsome foliage and abundant fall berries. They are very tolerant plants that will grow almost anywhere.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Mockingbird magnet!

This plant looked dead when I received it two years ago, but revived when we put it in the front yard, full sun, fairly dry. Boy, did it come back! The first year, abundant flowers and leaves but no berries. Last year, lots of berries and amazing growth—the bush is at least twice its size on shipment. And I have never seen so many mockingbirds on my property before—they just love those berries!

Latin Name Pronunciation: ah-roe'-nee-ah

Easy to grow in full sun or partial shade and almost any sort of soil (even moisture is required in the South and West). Fruit is more abundant and fall color is richer in full sun. Plants tend to sucker from the base, spreading slowly to form a multistemmed clump. Prune as necessary either in late winter or after plants bloom in spring; be aware that pruning at either time will reduce fruit production in fall.
