Sambucus Black Beauty Shrubs
Sambucus Black Beauty (Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla Gerda PBR)
Probably the darkest and most luxuriant foliage of any of the new ‘Elderberry’ varieties, Black Beauty has large burgundy-black leaves making a perfect contrast against the flat heads of pale pink lemon scented flowers that are revealed from deep red buds in early Summer, followed by purple-black fruits that are very popular with birds.
A magnificent large shrub for a sunny spot (for the best foliage colour, grows perfectly well in partial shade but the colouration is more green-bronze) 3m x 3m
