Description / Sambucus Black Lace®

Sambucus Black Lace® stands true to its name with deeply cut leaves of charcoal, giving it a ferny, lacy look. With 6-inch clusters of blooms and vibrant autumn berries, this ever-changing beauty is the showstopper of any hedge, border, foundation, or specimen planting.

If you love the Japanese Maple, but live too far north to grow it, Sambucus Black Lace® is the perfect substitute. It emerges in the spring with rich black foliage and keeps its color right through summer's heat, playing backdrop to clusters of dark pink buds that open to bright, pastel pink blooms.

The early-summer flowers are followed by deep red berries that stand out beautifully against the leaves as autumn sets in. The berries invite cheerful birds to this shrub, adding even more color to the garden. Black Lace™ definitely stands out for its constant evolution through spring, summer and fall!

The result of 10 years' breeding work, Black Lace™ has already created a sensation in Western Europe, where it is the "it" shrub. The beautiful foliage gives you all the intrigue of a Japanese maple, yet it thrives in the north's chilly climate. Growing in Zones 4 to 7, it withstands cold winds, very low temperatures, and even partial shade without losing a bit of its appeal.

Black Lace™ would make a perfect hedge, foundation planting, border standout, or specimen. It reaches 6 feet tall and 8 feet wide, a perfect size for a variety of landscape uses. Design a garden display around its black leaves and early summer flowers, and WOW your neighbors.
