Love the black leaves. I'm add this plant to my shopping list.

It is a great plant Bathgate. Looks attractive with its lacy dark leaves even without flowers but flowers really compliment these leaves colour wise.

Love these. I have a couple, but the leaves are not so feathery as yours . . . I prefer yours!

I had to google Sheila what other dark leaf elderberries are there as I only know the one I have. I found one called black Tower. Is it the one you have? I did like the slim shape of it.

My label only says Sambucus nigra Klahanie, but it could be 'black tower' or possibly 'black beauty'; however since I cut it hard back last year it is bushy and waist-high (in front garden, OH didn't want it coming above the windowsill).
