Sambucus racemosa 'Golden Locks'
Common Name: Elderberry Family: Adoxaceae (The Viburnum family)

Sambucus racemosa 'Golden Locks'
Zoom In Photo:

As soon as 'Golden Locks' arrived at the nursery last year they were quickly stuffed into trunks and back seats and whisked away. This superlative cultivar has finely dissected gold foliage offering both stunning texture and striking folial colour. Clusters of creamy white flowers are borne in June and are followed by bright red fruit -- a sight to behold against the foliage!
