About Black Beauty Elderberry
Black Beauty Elderberry demands your attention and then rewards you with a dramatic display throughout the season. This shrub’s darkest purple foliage is more effective and long-lasting than that of other cultivars. No other shrub offers ten-inch cymes of pink flowers scented with citrus. The shiny black berries that follow are so prolific they weigh down the branches.

A guide to choosing the right size
1 Quart = Available for immediate dispatch. Plants are between 3in-36in in height. They are like small plug plants with deep (5in) roots that will get established very quickly.
Bareroot = Field grown plants that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April.
1 Gallon & larger = Container grown or bare root plants (planted in containers while dormant) and can be planted all year round. Nursery standard container size (also called #1). The size refers to the amount of soil that the container holds which is slightly less than 1 gallon. Please note that at the moment we do not ship gallon and larger plants.
