Black Lace Elderberry

Description
This lovely shrub has it all—beautiful lacy foliage of purple so rich it appears black, huge 10" clusters of pink flowers with a light lemony scent, and a sturdy, easy–to–grow constitution. The flowers attract butterflies in early summer, and glossy dark berries attract over 51 bird species. Prefers a moist, humusy, well–drained soil, but adapts readily to dryer conditions. It takes pruning well, so you can keep it any size you wish, though flowering is more prolific if heavy pruning is only every 3rd year. Deer tend to avoid. Get a head start on growing this shrub—Black Lace Elderberry ships garden–ready in a gallon–sized pot. Sambucus nigra 'Eva' PP15575.

  • Unique CharactersticsPW: Intense purple black foliage is finely cut like lace, giving it an effect similar to that of Japanese maple. Indeed, some designers are using it in place of more sensitive plants since Black Lace is extremely durable and adaptable. Pink flowers in early summer contrast with the dark leaves for a stunning effect and give way to black berries if a compatible pollinator is planted nearby. This beautiful, versatile shrub works in just about any landscape setting or as a potted shrub on the patio. Good in groupings or masses, or perennial and shrub borders. Makes a nice specimen or screen. Good in wet soils. The color on Black Lace elderberry is best in cool climates; in hot areas, it may grow primarily green foliage.
