Sambucus BLACK TOWER

SKU: SAM-BLA-TOW-3LT
£15.00Price

This tall and slender deciduous shrub is primarily grown for its foliage, which emerges green in spring, but (if exposed to lots of sun) will soon turn a deep burgundy colour. In early summer, the stems are crowned with big, flattened sprays of lightly perfumed, small pink flowers. It makes a dramatic stand-alone statement, and is useful for adding contrast and interest to the shrub border.
