Sambucus nigra ‘Black beauty’


Best sited in full sun to get the best dark foliage from this reliable sturdy shrub, the dark burgundy almost black leaves make an excellent background for the pink and white flowers that open from dark red buds in May. Dark purple berries follow that are edible ( we use our to make wine!) but if you’re not ready to harvest them for your own use the birds will gladly help you out as they love them. Although it will grow to 3mts in height it can be kept to about 1.2mts if you prune it back to about 60cms each winter , keeping it’s shape more compact.

Plants are supplied in a 2ltr pot and may be pruned back for dispatch.
