Description
Seductively dark foliage makes this Elder particularly alluring. The burgundy-black leaves of Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Black Beauty' are the perfect contrast with its pink flowers. The sweet, lemon-scented blooms are carried in dense panicles in early summer, and later replaced by glossy black elderberries that are loved by birds. This hardy, deciduous shrub makes a highly decorative specimen for wildlife gardens, large borders and woodland areas. Height: 6m (20'). Spread: 4m (12').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Sambucus in any moist but well drained soil in full sun or dappled shade, plants will also survive on poor, chalky soils.
More Info
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.
