Sambucus Nigra Golden Tower, also called Elderberry Golden Tower, is a stunning new elderberry cultivar with many excellent qualities to recommend it. Its distinctive foliage and attractive columnar shape helped make it a winner of a Bronze Medal at the 2015 Plantarium!
Bred in the Netherlands, Sambucus Nigra Golden Tower is a deciduous shrub that has been developed for its golden foliage colour, narrow shape, and small size. Its spectacular yellow-green foliage maintains its brilliant colour from spring through to the autumn, and the finely-incised leaves add a beautiful texture in addition to the stunning colour. In early summer, clusters of fragrant white flowers appear, followed by glossy black berries in autumn, which will attract birds to your garden.
Hardy throughout the UK, Elderberry Golden Tower will grow to a mature height of 3 metres and spread of 1 metre in 20 years. It will need little or no pruning to maintain its attractive columnar shape, but will respond well to hard pruning to restrict growth, if desired.
Plant Sambucus Nigra Golden Tower in full sun or partial shade in any moist, humus-rich soil in an exposed or sheltered position. As it is salt-tolerant, Sambucus Nigra Golden Tower will do well in coastal locations, and its tolerance to pollution makes it perfect for city gardens, too. Resistant to deer, it’s a good choice for country gardens.
The small size of Sambucus Nigra Golden Tower makes it great specimen tree for a variety of planting locations. It is suitable for container planting on a roof terrace or patio, or in a courtyard garden. Its brilliant foliage will be shown to advantage if planted as a specimen tree as a focal point in a small lawn, or in a pair flanking a doorway. Planted towards the back of a mixed border, it will add height and season-long beauty. As part of a mixed shrub hedge its golden colour will be a highlight. In a woodland or wildlife garden, the glowing colour of Elderberry Golden Tower’s foliage will stand out.
Sambucus Nigra Golden Tower is a new version of an old favourite which can fit into gardens large and small! Its stunning foliage colour, lovely flowers, and distinctive narrow columnar shape make it the perfect tree for any UK garden.
