SAMBUCUS (ELDER)

(deciduous leaf-losing)

The golden elders are very attractive and are not particular about soil. Plant from October to March.

Sambucus nigra aurea (golden-leaved elder) grows rapidly to 10 or 12 ft., and is a relative of the common elder.

S. racemosa plumosa aurea, 8 to 10 ft., grows slowly, and has finely cut golden leaves.
