A truly gorgeous elderberry with finely cut, ferny leaves that emerge coppery bronze in spring becoming golden with age! Flat umbrels of white flowers appear in late spring to early summer and, in autumn, produce red berries -- delicious in syrup or left for the birds. A large, deciduous shrub, to 8-10' tall and wide, but easily pruned back in spring to maintain a smaller size. Part shade for best foliage color and consistent summer water for health. Frost hardy to -30 °F, USDA zone 4.

One of the finest golden-leaved shrubs, this colorful (8-10') Elder has beautiful deeply-cut leaves, golden-yellow in sun/a pretty lime-green in shade; similar to Salix 'Plumosa Aurea' but less inclined to burn in sun. Sun-PSh/Med-Wet
