Description

A new variety of elder with deep, black burgundy leaves and pale pink flowers which are  lemon scented in early summer, opening from dark red buds. A wonderful specimen tree in any garden and happy in sun or partial shade, but for best foliage colour grow it in full sun, otherwise it can fade to a greenish-bronze. The purple black autumn fruits are loved by the songbirds.

Garden care: For the best effect cut back to ground level each year in early spring and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
