(Columnar Elder) An eye-catching new shrub which dark purple-black leaves and a dense, columnar, upright habit once established.

Flattened umbels (clusters) of small, white & pink flowers appear in midsummer, followed by masses of small black fruit which are popular with birds and wildlife.

A spectacular foliage plant suitable for gardens with limited space or for growing in a large container. This is a slow growing shrub and not for instant gratification.
