This lovely shrub has it all—beautiful lacy foliage of purple so rich it appears black, huge 10" clusters of pink flowers with a light lemony scent, and a sturdy, easy-to-grow constitution! The flowers attract butterflies in early summer, and glossy dark berries attract over 51 bird species. Prefers a moist, humusy, well-drained soil, but adapts readily to dryer conditions. It takes pruning well, so you can keep it any size you wish, though flowering is more prolific if heavy pruning is only every 3rd year. Deer tend to avoid. Sambucus nigra 'Eva' PP15575.
