What is this tree?!

I’ve inherited this tree and have no clue what it is, any ideas? Many thanks!


  • sorry about the pictures being the wrong way round - first time poster! 
  • It looks like Sambucus nigra to me, and from the purple colour of the leaves and their shape, it could be 'Eva' which is a lovely variety.

    I agree, also possibly S. nigra 'Black lace'.
    EDit : Oops - same thing! :)

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I agree, I'm pretty sure Black Lace has been renamed Eva ( but I might be wrong )
  • Thanks so much!
