A striking variety of elderberry with a narrow and upright habit that takes up far less space than other varieties. Lace-textured, near black foliage covers straight stems angled upwards, staying within a narrow column. A multitude of pink flowers cover the shrubs in early summer. Blooms on old wood. Elderberry shrubs attract birds, though plants are toxic to pets and livestock, who tend to stay away anyway. Pruning is not necessary, but dead wood should be removed in early spring. Low maintenance. Well-drained, moist to average soil is sufficient. Suitable as a border or landscaping plant, in containers or formal planting. Exotic looking, but hardy and easy to grow! Note that to produce berries, you will need an appropriate companion pollinator plant; see your garden specialist.
