this shrub is just to leaf up in my own, the deep coloured foliage is a joy in the garden, highlighted more when you plant alongside bright coloured shrubs, I have mines underplanted with golden Euonymus and this colour combination gives a great effect for a good 5 months of the year. Sambucus Black Beauty is a vigorous shrub, I cut mines back and it re-grows 6' a year and flowers in summer too....a great plant!
