Elderberry - Black Beauty

 Purple Foliage and a Lemon Fragrance


The Black Beauty Elderberry is an exquisite and unconventional ornamental shrub. 


 Plant a few of them as a unique hedge or allow a few to naturalize in a low spot of your yard.  Even a single plant would look remarkable as a backdrop for more conventional plantings.
 
When you first see this shrub you’ll be astonished by its exotic foliage.  Long, lance-shaped leaves range from deep-purple to black, and even the young stems are purple as well. 


As if that wasn’t enough, clusters of pink blossoms will spring forth as summer approaches, emitting a delightful lemon scent to further tantalize your senses.  Butterflies will flock to your garden drawn by your flower’s scent and sweet nectar.
 
As summer begins to wane, clusters of purple fruit will be ready for you to harvest.  High in antioxidants, vitamins and other nutritional value, Elderberries have been prized for generations for their varied uses. 


Of course, if you prefer to not make use of the Elderberry’s remarkable fruit, your feathered friends will certainly make use of them for you.
 
Pies, preserves and wine are just a few of the delicious uses for your Elderberry’s bounty.  The plant also has traditionally been used for other purposes as well. 


Many parts are used medicinally and dyes are made from its bark and leaves.  Even the wood itself cuts and polishes easily. 


The flowers are also made into wine or served in other dishes
 
The Black Beauty Elderberry grows to 12 feet with an equal spread.  However, if you prefer a shorter plant, it will readily adapt to pruning. 


There’s sure to be space somewhere in your yard for this unique, one-of-a-kind ornamental.
