Yellow blooms in mid to late summer complete the show!

A great improvement for this very popular plant!
Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar name: 'Eiffel01'

A dramatic new Black Elder with a sturdy, columnar form, jet-black foliage, and masses of two-tone pink blooms all summer long. The large leaves are neatly serrated and slightly incurled along the long edges, creating more depth for the shrub, and the branching goes right to the ground.

The new foliage emerges celery-green, for fantastic contrast. And the flat-topped flower clusters, which appear solid pink from a distance, are revealed to be white at the base and deep rosy-pink to carmine at the top.

In autumn the flowers are replaced by black berries, beloved by birds. Wonderfully disease-resistant, this 6- to 8-foot-high, 3- to 4-foot-wide shrub appreciates a good pruning after the flowers pass, but needs little other care to keep its unique shape, lush foliage, and heavy bloom year after year.

Space these plants 3 feet apart for solid coverage, and be sure to cut them to about a foot from the ground in late winter. They'll come back bushier and better than ever before -- and in less time than you would have believed possible! Enjoy this handsome shrub. Zones 3-9.
