Plant of the Week 01/25/2019
Black Beauty ® Elderberry (Zone 4-7) Sambucus nigra ‘Gerda’
Pretty-petite pink flower clusters explode against the dark purple foliage of this summer stunner! Plant a single specimen as a focal point or plant in a grouping for summer privacy. Black Beauty Elderberry is drought resistant but performs best with regular watering. Needs partial to full sun.
Birds are attracted to the berries that appear in the fall. This moderate grower can reach up to 10’ tall but can be trimmed and kept as a smaller perennial if desired.
