Elderberry - Golden Elder

Fast-Growing, Golden Shrub 


Golden Elder Elderberry is a fast-growing shrub with several ornamental features.  These would look outstanding in your yard as a shrub border or in a naturalized area.


Your Golden Elder Elderberry is a fast-growing, hardy shrub that’s lovely even when not in bloom or in fruit.  Its pinnate leaves host up to eleven leaflets each, adding definition and texture to your landscape. 


The foliage features a handsome, yellow to golden-green hue that will maintain its color throughout the season.  Fragrant, star-shaped tiny blossoms cluster together to form flat-topped bouquets in spring, a dressy accompaniment to the lively foliage. 


As summer progressing into fall, the red drupes ripen, awaiting your harvest (or that of your yard’s wildlife).  The fruit makes outstanding pies, jam and wine or can be left on the shrub for the nutritional value it holds for wildlife into the winter months.


Golden Elder Elderberry is a deciduous shrub that grows up to twelve feet tall.  It has a broad, rounded shape and is tolerant of a variety of conditions.  However, the color of your Golden Elder foliage will be best if you plant it in full sun and in moist soils.  It doesn’t mind some pruning, and although unnecessary, will be better for it.


Overall, the Golden Elder Elderberry is hardy shrub with a lot of ornamental interest, but requiring little or no care.
