It is like the ones in the chapparal of southern California that I have seen. It is evergreen, mostly, and really always growing in winter here, where as elderberry is deciduous here. The leaves will droop at about 25f and perk up above that. Also very drought tolerant, mine survives on 8"!
Here is a little kicker different from S. cerulea(according to Wikipedia) , , they bloom from March until thanksgiving here, continuously, with a little slowdown now till August. They become nearly white with blooming around October as they like the cooler weather.
Albuquerque, actually Rio Rancho,
New Mexico. Zone 7
Annual precip about 8"
Elevation =10' shy of a mile although climate change may change that
