This black elder tree is Sambucus nigra 'Black Beauty' and it forms into a rather delightful, upright, deciduous shrub or small tree. The foliage is burgundy-black and the leaves are pinnate. The foliage makes a great contrast against lime-green and yellow-leafed plants.

  • Grow in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soils.
  • Can also cope with chalky sites.
  • Tolerates shade, but colours best in sun.
  • Fruit and flowers may be used for flavouring, wine and cooking.
  • Height and spread: up to 6m, with a 4m spread.
  • Please allow up to 7 days for delivery
