BLACK BEAUTY® is easy to grow and versatile in the landscape – it can be grown as a shrub or cut it back each year and use it as a bold perennial or train it to grow as a small tree!

  1. Janet | Zone: 6

    Nice Color
    Very leggy. Growth is horizontal as much as it is vertical. My family calls it the Medusa shrub. I’m in zone 6a and this plant has to be cut back every year–no life whatsoever on old branches. Despite close proximity of another elderberry bush I have yet to see more than one bunch of flowers. The color is nice and the kids find it quirky. Wouldn’t be my first choice.
