Black Lace® elderberry is a perfectly stylish addition to your landscape. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: To produce berries, you'll need a Black Beauty®, Instant Karma®, or Laced Up® elderberry as a pollinator. According to the Humane Society of America, elderberry can be toxic to pets if consumed.
