A plant that does exactly what its label says, Sambucus Black Tower grows dark green to burgundy leaves on tall, strong stems. Growing to a height of 2.5m with a spread of half that amount, this plant is the ideal addition to smaller gardens where vertical thinking is key. In June, Sambucus Black Tower produces flattened heads of small, mixed pink flowers which turn to luxurious black elderberries later in the season. Easy to grow and maintain, this plant only needs general shaping in winter to encourage next year's growth. Flowers June. Height 200-250cm (79-98"). Supplied in a 3 litre pot.

For guaranteed impact in sunny garden borders our summer flowering shrubs are unbeatable! Versatile and undemanding they can be very effective for adding colour, texture and interest at a time when we naturally spend most time in the garden.
