Sambucus General Information:

Sambucus racemosa is a deciduous multi-stemmed shrub grown for foliage color and ornamental fruit. Prefers a moist soil but will adapt to dry soils. No pollinator needed.

Sambucus Plant Care:

Responds well to hard pruning each spring while dormant. Cut back older stems to the ground and one-year old wood by 1/2. Remove suckers at the base as they appear. Sambucus blooms on old wood.
