Elder tree ‘Black Tower’
£85 – £155
This striking tree will be a dramatic focal point in any outdoor space. The leaves emerge green but if the tree is grown in full sun they will quickly turn dark burgundy. In summer light pink and white delicately fragranced flowers emerge and contrast dramatically with the dark foliage. The flowers are followed by glossy dark berries which are loved by birds. This tree is the perfect choice for smaller gardens as it is compact and upright.
Fun fact, the flower heads can be boiled and made into a syrup or cordial.
