Native to the eastern United States and hardy to zone three, the aronia berry plant is a woody perennial shrub. It tolerates full sun or partial shade; however, in commercial plantings, full sun is recommended for the fruit to ripen uniformly. Aronia plants also adapt well to a wide range of soil drainage classes – from poorly drained to excessively well drained; however, the plant performs best in well-drained soils. Fruit ripens from late August through mid-September.
