Sambucus 'Black Lace' is a fully hardy deciduous shrub.
Fancy making a real statement of an unusual colour with an ornamental plant that will stand out from the rest, Sambucus 'Black Lace' is just the plant!
The deep burgundy, almost black cut-leaf foliage on this hardy, deciduous shrub is an absolute treat giving the perfect contrast against the lemon-scented, pinky white flat panicles of flowers in early Summer. Black Lace keeps on giving as the flowers are closely followed by small black fruits that can even be used to create a summery beverage. Turning rich red in the autumn, the leaves will give many months of interest before falling in the autumn, ready to start the performance all over again in the Spring.
Growing to approximately 5 metres in height, although a brave prune maybe every other Spring will help maintain the foliage colour.
Supplied in a 4.5-litre pot with the plant measuring approx. 30cm tall
