Sambucas racemosa 'Sutherland Gold'

Lovely lime-yellow foliage and a graceful habit set this elderberry apart. Each golden leaf is finely incised, which makes the plant seem like a giant, glowing fern. Also reminiscent of Japanese maple, it prefers growing in bright shade or partial sun, to avoid sunscald. New spring growth is a beautiful coppery-red turning bright yellow; as the season progresses, leaves take on a hint of limey green. Its dynamic presence brightens any shady corner. Will product clusters of red berries NOT edible to humans, although birds will relish them. Not a pollinizer.
