Elderberry Black Tower

ambucus nigra 'EIFFEL

$ 36.99 USD

2 - 5 gallon pots ranging in price from $36.99 to $56.99 Black Tower Elderberry is a beautiful new shrub that grows rapidly into a narrow vertical accent of rich red-black foliage. It soon reaches 6 to 8 feet in height, but it stays only 3 or perhaps 4 feet wide. This makes it an ideal way to develop a strong vertical form in a narrow space – something always difficult to do in a garden. The foliage is only the beginning, as big heads of pink flowers grow in early summer, and these are followed by attractive clusters of shiny black berries by fall. You can even turn those berries into baked goods, jams and wine.
