Garden greens 1 (Sambucus racemosa (Red-berried elder))

This is part of the shady side of my garden.....lots of greens, alongside Tin Lizzy,Sambucus Sutherland's Gold, and the variegated standard Salix flamingo.

All looking fabulous janey, i especially like the Sambucus...think i like it better than the dark leaved one...I have gone off dark leaves a bit...Even my green acer appeals to me more these days..

Janey, do you have any trouble with scorch on the samubucus leaves? my nurseryman friend says they've stopped selling this var as it is so easily damaged up here....I wondered if you had that problem further south.

Thanks everyone....Moti, I'm the same, don't care for dark green, I think after the winter we need light and sun don't we...:o)
She is sweet isn't she Sheila...a pressie from Kat my daughter, as she looks like Poppy.
Thanks Sixpence...I do like your new avatar pic, that is bright and cheerful...or could be scary, like out of a horror movie....:o((
No Karen, though the flower buds did fall off before they opened, it was after the warmth early on then a cold snap again. It' is in the shade though and I do water often.
Thanks Carole....:o)

Beautiful planting, we bought Sutherland Gold but it died so we had our money back.......

Oh, that's a shame Dd....good that you got reimbursed though, I think this one would prefer more light, but so far it's okay.....:o)
