Description
A fully hardy, deciduous, large shrub or small tree which will need plenty of space. Sambucus nigra 'Marginata' is popular for its attractive, dark green foliage edged with creamy-yellow margins. From June to August, huge flattened umbels of white flowers, up to 20cm (8") in width, produce a tantalising musk scent which attracts pollinating insects to the garden. The flowers are followed by glossy, purple-black elderberries from September to November, which will provide a food source for birds. This variety is Elder is best grown in dappled shade for the best leaf colour, but will happily tolerate full sun. Height and spread: to 6m (20').

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.
