Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
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').

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