Aronia floribunda (Lindl.) Spach is a common shrub in wetlands. I have seen it at Ponemah Bog and Pawtuckaway State Park. This plant is probably a hybrid between Aronia arbutifolia and Aronia melanocarpa. It is most similar in general appearance to A. melanocarpa. A. floribunda has leaf undersides that are very hairy. The plant is in the family Rosaceae.
