Sambucus Nigra XXL 150/175cm 35 Litre:  Sambucus Nigra, also known as the European elder, is a species of flowering plant in the family Adoxaceae. It is native to Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. The plant typically grows to a height of 6 metres and has a bushy, deciduous habit.

The leaves of Sambucus Nigra are pinnate and arranged opposite each other on the branches. Each leaf is composed of 5-9 leaflets that are serrated and elliptical in shape. The foliage is dark green in color and provides an attractive backdrop for the plant's flowers and berries.

The flowers are generally small, creamy-white, and arranged in clusters called umbels. These umbels can reach up to 20 cm in diameter and are highly fragrant. The flowers bloom in late spring or early summer and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

After the flowers fade, Sambucus Nigra produces small, dark purple to black berries. These berries are edible but should be cooked before consumption, as they can be mildly toxic when raw. They are commonly used in the production of jams, jellies, and elderberry wine.

Sambucus Nigra is a versatile plant that is often cultivated for its ornamental value as well as its culinary and medicinal uses. Its attractive foliage, fragrant flowers, and nutritious berries make it a popular choice in gardens and landscaping. Additionally, the plant has a long history of traditional medicinal use for treating various ailments, including colds, flu, and inflammation.
