5X Black Elder hedging 15-20cm 'Sambucus Nigra' 'Black Beauty' - 9cm Pot

A highly ornamental form of Elder this variety has almost black, beautifully dissected foliage and from May to June pale pink, musk-scented blooms emerge from beautiful creamy-pink buds. It makes an excellent deciduous shrub for all styles of gardens and has the added bonus of having blackish-red berries in autumn which are attractive to birds and when ripe can be used to make a wonderful wine. For best foliage colour grow it in full sun, otherwise it can fade to a greenish-bronze. It can be cut back hard each year to maintain a compact plant.
