Perhaps better known as Tower Elder or Black Tower. An outstanding large shrub or small tree with an upright, columnar habit. Foliage opens green in spring but when grown it full sun the leaves quickly turn a beautiful deep dark shade of burgundy purple. In early summer the dusky leaves are complemented by big, flattened sprays of small pink flowers with large red anthers and a delicate musk like perfume. The flowers are replaced in late June by small glossy purple-black elderberries, these are very attractive to birds and are also prized by wine makers. Dense and compact this striking Elder with its upright habit makes a dramatic stand-alone statement but it is also ideal for adding contrast and interest to the shrub border. To achieve the best foliage and colour grow in full sun, cut the plant back to ground level each year in early spring and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or farmyard manure. Prefers a humus-rich, moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil. Sambucus nigra Black Tower is fully hardy and comparatively trouble free making it suitable for planting anywhere in the U.K. or Ireland. Growing just 2.5m tall and around 1m wide this deciduous, easy to grow shrub will make a memorable feature in even the smallest of gardens. Illustrations used are of mature plants and may not necessarily reflect the plant at this time of year. Plants are supplied ex. 9cm pots and best results are obtained by growing them on for a short time in a slightly larger container before planting in their final growing positions.
