Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
If you love dark foliage but have limited space then look no further than Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Black Tower'. This striking Elder is dense and compact, with an upright habit that's ideal for smaller borders or as a stand-alone specimen. The large leaves emerge green but quickly darken to deep burgundy when grown in full sun. Flattened heads of fragrant pink flowers complement the dark leaves, and are later replaced by glossy black elderberries. This deciduous shrub is easy to grow and makes a memorable feature in even the smallest garden. Height: 2.5m (8'). Spread: 1.2m (4').

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.
