Sambucus nigra 'Madonna'
Madonna European Elder

The golden-green emergent foliage of Madonna European Elderberry quickly fades to creamy-green. This five- to ten-foot tall shrub is marginally stem hardy in zone 5, but it is best treated like an herbaceous perennial and generously sheared or pruned to the ground every Spring to encourage even more vibrant and vigorous variegated growth.
