Golden Elderberry (Hedging)


Bright and bold, the Golden Elderberry makes a striking addition to your garden and an unusual deciduous hedge. The attractive yellow-green, pinnate leaves are the perfect compliment to the panicles of sweetly scented dainty white flowers in early summer. These nectar-rich blooms are followed in autumn by clusters of small black elderberries which contrast beautifully with the foliage, and are a popular food with birds. Sambucus nigra ‘Aurea’ adds variety to mixed wildlife hedges or alternatively is an effective and vibrant screen planted alone. As with all elders, the blossoms can be harvested to make a delicious elderflower cordial. Height and spread: 4m (13′). Supplied as 50 – 80cm bareroots (20 – 31). Planting Distance: 30cm (12)
