Product Description

BLACK BEAUTY® (S. nigra 'Gerda ppaf) NEW from England! Intense Purple-Black foliage provides season long interest and color! The unique, massive 10", pink flowers cover the plant in midsummer and emit a light lemon fragrance. A first for Sambucus! Dark purple berries in late summer attract songbirds and can be use to make wine. Use it as a shrub, as a bold perennial or train it into a small tree. It's colorful, versatile and easy to grow. It s finally here - the plant sensation of Europe is available in America. Black Beauty is a breakthrough plant with intriguing dark black foliage. Not only does this plant make Guincho Purple extinct, but it totally changes your perception of Sambucus. The leaf color does not fade to green in summer, but actually gets darker. Loads of lemon scented, rich pink flowers in late June early July that contrast wonderfully with the foliage. Grow it as a shrub, or cut it back each year and use it as a bold perennial. Tons of impulse appeal! Developed by Ken Tobutt and Jacqui Prevette of the HRI - East Malling Research Station in England.
