Regular price £11.99
Upright bushy shrub with deep burgundy foliage and clusters of small pink flowers in summer. Less spreading than other varieties, it works well in smaller spaces.

Key Features

  • Hardy perennial
  • Prefers full sun

Pack Contents: 9cm Potted Plant

Size: 1.5m/5ft


  • Dark burgundy foliage
  • Scented pink flowers in summer
  • Narrow, upright shape

This popular and very attractive deciduous shrub is prized for its striking foliage which emerges bright green in spring, turning deep burgundy in summer. Clusters of small pink scented flowers in summer stand out well against the dark leaves. Sambucus ‘Black Tower’ has a narrower shape than other varieties, needing less space in a border.

For the best leaf colour, plant Sambucus nigra 'Black Tower' in full sun. Cut back stems to ground level each year in spring and mulch well with compost or well-rotted farmyard manure.
