Quick Overview:

Golden Tower Elderberry has shimmering golden, lacey leaves that resemble a Japanese maple. Its dense, columnar habit makes an ideal focal plant in the landscape. White flower clusters are produced in spring, followed by clusters of red berries providing a beautiful contrast against the foliage.

Note: All parts of the plant are toxic to people, pets and livestock. But because of the distinctive odour of the leaves, animals tend to avoid it. Fruits are edible, but only if cooked.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)

Description

Grow in medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils, but prefers moist, humusy ones. Plants spread by root suckers to form colonies. Prune suckers as they appear unless naturalizing is desired. Plants also spread freely by self-seeding in optimum conditions. A large number of late winter pruning options include (a) pruning out dead or weakened stems, (b) shortening one year stems or (c) cutting back to the ground to rejuvenate. Unpruned plants can rapidly become unattractive and weedy in appearance.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
