Add multi-season interest with the Black Tower Elderberry shrub. The serrated leaves emerge green and then mature to a burgundy, almost jet-black colour. It gets even more beautiful as pink flowers adorn the shrub in the summer. Edible blackish purple berries follow the fragrant flowers. This upright columnar shrub is great for screening.
