Elderberry Plants

Elderberry is a highly ornamental shrub that produces masses of fragrant flowers from spring through summer, which in turn, produces dark, edible berries that are ready for harvesting when their color is dark, usually in late summer or early fall (August-September).

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus, are mostly known as wildlife plants, but they look great in a natural garden setting as well, and can even be grown in containers with the right conditions. The berries are mainly used as an ingredient in syrups, extracts, pies, jams and wines. Read our blog to learn more about the care and uses for Elderberries.

Sutherland Gold Elderberry Plant

Price $10.50

Resembling a giant fern, the 'Sutherland Gold' Elderberry Plant’s deeply cut leaves and full branching habit contribute greatly to that look. Said to be more sun-tolerant than any other gold variety of Elderberry, this sambucus will display its brilliant leaf color in partial or dappled shade. In hot climates be sure to plant where there is afternoon shade as its leaves are just a bit susceptible to sunburn. In spring, the leaves emerge a rich golden color with a coppery sheen, maturing to an amazingly deep golden yellow and then slowly turning lime-green throughout the summer. It’s fun, airy, vibrant appearance may be just the thing for that vacant, shady corner! Each 4-inch pot contains one Sutherland Gold Elderberry plant. Available to Order December 1st
