Sambucus nigra 'Black Tower' PP23633

Elder - European

‘Black Tower’ (‘Eiffel 1’) Elderberry is an upright shrub which offers several seasons of interest. The dark purple finely cut leaves emerge in spring and are crowned in May and June by two-toned pink flat flower clusters. In the fall Sambucus nigra ‘Black Tower’ displays reddish purple berries which birds consume with relish. The delicate leaf pattern and the columnar habit make ‘Black Tower’ an exciting element in the landscape. Can also be used as a hedge or screen. Bred by Kenneth Tobutt of England.
