Sambucus Nigra 'Aurea' Hedging

Golden Elder, Sambucus nigra Aurea, is a large native shrub with yellowy-green leaves. It can be used as a rough country hedging plant and it will grow in any soil, including damp sites.
Golden Elder can reach 4 metres tall.
You can also buy Common Elder trees here. Alternatively, view our selection of native hedging or see our full range of hedging plants.

Golden Elder hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Golden Elder hedge:

Plant Golden Elder hedging at 2-3 plants per metre, 33-50cms apart.
This plant is aggressive and is not recommended for a mixed hedge. It will never form a tidy, formal hedge and looks best when it is allowed to get a bit overgrown.

General description of Golden Elder plants:

Sambucus nigra Aurea, is probably the best native golden leaved shrub. Apart from the leaf colour, it's the same as the common elderflower and it can also be used to make elderflower cordial. It will grow pretty much anywhere and looks good at the back of a border, on the edge of woodland or as a low part of a windbreak.

History & uses of Sambucus nigra Aurea:

This variety was bred in the 1880's. It has won an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Both the flowers and fruit can be used to make beverages.
