An unusual elderberry with the elegance of a Japanese maple which can be put anywhere in the garden

Description

Here is an unusual and very ornamental variety which breaks with the traditional image of the elderberry. Its bright foliage is composed of fine, laciniated leaves. The young shoots are golden and then turn a greeny-yellow. Its supple branches and elegant, layered habit give it the look of a Japanese maple. Flowering is early, forming clusters of white flowers at the end of spring followed by magnificent red berries in summer. Sambucus Welsh Gold is relatively slow-growing and easy to cultivate, it will be at home in small and large gardens.

Care

Pruning is easy: after flowering, and only if necessary, cut short the old branches that you want to refresh and cut the young twigs back by a third in order to keep the plant dense.
