Cultivar Notes - 'Black Beauty« ('Gerda')'
Intriguing dark black foliage and pink, lacy flowers are taking the market by storm. Massive, lemon-scented, pink flowers in mid-summer contrast wonderfully with the foliage. Grow it as a shrub, or cut it back each year and use it as a bold perennial.
Genus Notes - Sambucus
Sambucus can be a fantastic ornamental garden plant. This is a bold plant with vigorous growth. Most people find that treating it as a perennial and cutting it back hard each fall makes for a neat and beautiful plant. North America native.
