Sambucus racemosa 'Sutherland Gold' (Large Plant)

European Red Elder

Hardy Shrub

Sambucus racemosa 'Sutherland Gold' is an easy to grow shrub for any garden. The foliage is fancy; appearing in bright golden colours and with a delightful feathering. Plants are good-shaped and are easy to care for and prune.

Even in full sun, the foliage of this striking Elder will look luminous and healthy, resisting sun-scorch surprisingly well. Later in summer, plants will produce frothy white flowers and elder berries. Plants will last for many years in the garden, and make a good hedging plant too. Height and spread: 2.5m (8.2').


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Grow Sambucus in any moist but well drained soil in full sun or dappled shade, plants will also survive on poor, chalky soils.
Sambucus plants require very little pruning except for general maintenance and shaping in winter. However, if they become too large after a few years, they will also respond well to hard, restrictive pruning. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
