Description

Enjoy your own Elderberry jam, wine, champagne and cordials with this heavily fruiting Sambucus. This Austrian selection is favoured by commercial orchards for its heavy crops of large, black-purple berries. As well as providing an abundance of fruit, Sambucus nigra ‘Haschberg’ is great for wildlife. In May/June, fragrant umbels of white flowers attract beneficial pollinators to the fruit garden and can be used to make elderflower cordial and champagne. The berries that follow in August/September make excellent jams, desserts and wines, as well as being enjoyed by the birds.

Sambucus nigra ‘Haschberg’ is a fast-growing shrub with strong, upright stems clothed in green leaves. It can be planted as a single specimen or incorporated into an ‘edible hedgerow’ along with species such as wild cherry, blackthorn and crab apple. Self-fertile, resilient and disease-free, it copes with most soils including heavy clay. Height: 4m (13ft). Spread: 2m (6.5ft).

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

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.
