Sambucus nigra ‘Black Lace’™ (Black Lace™ Elderberry)
Habit: Large, rounded shrub growing to 6-8 feet tall with similar spread. Perfect for perennial gardens, patio plantings, and groupings.
Color: Attractive lacy purplish black foliage adorns this Elderberry cultivar. (Foliage appears black in northern climates (Zone 6) only when planted in full sun). In addition to the dark leaf color, ‘Black Lace’ Elderberry also has massive pink flowers that reach six inches in diameter. A nice contrast for the black foliage when in bloom.
Culture: Plant in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Fairly easy shrub to transplant and grow.
