Aren’t the breeders krafty, I often say to myself. Take European elder, for instance. This omnipresent shrub grows anywhere, without any maintenance and the more you prune it the thicker it gets. Well, what a promising start for cultivation, someone said. And here we are! So forget this common weed of our countryside and dive in the world of SAMBUCUS, the world of colours, shapes and sizes that, with 10 different varieties, could well do for one complete garden.
This variety of elder comes from England. It has striking golden-yellow fern-like foliage. New leaves have pink to reddish-purple margins. Flowering panicles are not too showy but are followed by very attractive fruit: bright red glossy berries in late summer. For best appearance we suggest pruning it to half its size early in the spring to encourage new growths with loads of leaves. It tolerates any soil and location and is fully hardy.
