More Information

Description Attention, variegation lovers! Instant Karma® elderberry (Sambucus nigra) from Proven Winners is just the shrub your collection has been calling out for. Boldly yet neatly variegated foliage in cream/yellow and mint green is consistent and doesn't revert. A great choice for lighting up the shade, as its large white portions give it better shade tolerance than most. In early summer, very large, very lacy white flower clusters cover the plant. They attract pollinators and develop into black berries in autumn if a compatible pollinator (see below for more information) is planted nearby. Instant Karma elderberry will grow to be a large shrub is left to grow, or it can be pruned into a tree-like shape in early spring. It's a versatile, beautiful, easy-care way to add foliage interest to your garden. If you want berries to form on this elderberry, you need to plant a different variety to pollinate it - you can choose from Black Lace, Black Beauty, and Laced Up. Plant them anywhere within 50' of another, though closer is preferable to ensure the best pollination. Both plants will get berries. *Berries should only be used for ornamental purposes, not to be ingested. Details Botanical name: Sambucus nigra 'Sanivalk'
Patent #: USPP 28,314
Common name: Elderberry
Zone: 5 - 7
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 6-8' tall & Wide
Flower color: White
Foliage color: White/cream and green
Season of Interest: Spring-fall
Uses: Specimen, hedge, perennial gardens, landscaping.
How To Grow Soil: Not finicky about soil, as long as it is well drained. Tolerates occasional wetness and dryness.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade (4-6 hrs of sun/day). The warmer the climate, the more beneficial shade becomes.
Water: Average.
Space: 6-8' apart, depending on your ultimate goal for the plant. Fertilizing: Little needed. Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring if desired.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended; nothing else is needed.
Maintenance & Pruning: Avoid cutting plants back/trimming them; rather, prune out branches selectively to attain desired shape. If you want to have berries on your plant, you will need to plant another elderberry of the same species within 50' of this one. Not recommended for hot climates.

Instant Karma's gonna get you!

I got Instant Karma as a pollinator for Black Lace. To be honest, I wasn't terribly thrilled about the look of the leaves. But there are only a couple of pollinators for Black Lace, and this was the only one available at the time. It arrived as a healthy but small plant, so I didn't expect much the first year. It went into the ground on May 15 2021. It didn't do very much at all for the first 8 weeks, although it remained healthy and seemed to like where it was planted (full sun). Then, in July, it started to take off. Now it's become a large, lovely plant. The Black Lace plant produced a handful of berries, so Instant Karma seems to be doing its job in that department as well. I think next year it will really take off, and expect to see the bees from our hives all over it.

Beautiful!

I’d been on the hunt for this gem since it came out. Elderberry are so easy to care for and this one came in stellar. Yes it’s a small plant but these guys grow so quick!!! Can’t wait for it to fill in over the next couple years

I loved them, but they are all but dead & I don’t know why. I watered them regularly.

Great in container even through heat.

Bought my Elderberry Instant Karma back in April as a pollinator for my Black Lace Elderberry. It has established well in a 16" container & makes a great visual contrast with the 'Black Lace'.
