Sambucus nigra or Black Elder is an upright growing, deciduous, bushy shrub with mid-green foliage. From May to June it produces musk-scented white flowers which are then followed by glossy black fruit in August. Sambucus nigra is a great hedging plant, particularly ideal for country hedging and it will grow in most conditions and locations. The only soil type it doesn't particularly grow well in is sandy types. It can withstand colder weather as it is hardy and it tolerates exposed, windy areas too including coastal locations. It doesn't require full sun, however if you are growing it for the fruits, the more sun, the better the crop will be. Due to the fruits, it brings great wildlife value too.
