Red Berries Attract Songbirds in Fall
Extremely fine textured foliage emerges dark red changing to glowing yellow green to make a soft billowy mound of golden threads. White flowers in spring yield clusters of red fruit in the fall that benefit the birds. Prefers some shade in southern gardens. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.

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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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.
