One of the smallest varieties of burning bush. Stunning showy fall color of florescent red to pink, interesting corky wings on the branches, very adaptable and versatile. Ideal for all those tight spots in the garden.
This selection is not typical when compared to others because it's columnar. Most Elders are tall and wide, but not 'Black Tower'. The foliage is dark purple and it looks very large and leathery. Pink flowers followed by pink berries in fall.
The summer foliage is a glossy apple green. The fruit that follows is different than most Viburnums. Bright yellow fruit appear in clusters and then after the first frost they become a translucent golden yellow.
Proven Winner. Loads of large red berry clusters cover this plant in late summer. A very attractive shrub and easy to grow with a compact and rounded form. White flowers appear in May and the berries will persist well into fall.
