On a slightly rainy morning last week, I headed to a garden centre and happened upon this beauty in the parking lot. The colour combination is incredible (love that pink) and I was informed that it is a black elder bush, a variety that has become quite popular here. And I imagine you get elderberries in the fall!
It is a beauty, Pat. I don't think they grow here, though. Elderly people like me grow here, but not elderberry bushes. Of course I could be wrong. That's happened once or twice in my life. ;)
Haha! That Lowell is so funny! This is a real showstopper type bush Pat, might have to make a note of that name and see if it's available here..
P.s. can you even begin to imagine why anyone would want to sail around the world alone in a small boat, yeh right :)
Gorgeous contrast of foliage and flowers.
Amazing contrast! The flowers are lovely but the colour of the plant is fantastic.
I don't suppose there could be any elderberry wine from these ones?
It is a very pretty bush and I have seen quite a few without knowing what they were (so thank you!)
It is simply gorgeous!
I have one of these in the garden although it was sold under a much more exotic name, Black Lace or some-such! I always look forward to seeing it in flower, which is around beginning of July over here.
Ah, so that's what it is. I've seen them here.
Black and pink--a hip color combination.
That is a very trendy looking bush, gorgeous colour combination... very striking!
... and wine soon after???????
LOVE it. In fact, I have one...but it's still a baby and won't be this pretty for a few more years. :)
