Black Lace™ is a stunning development in Elderberry breeding. Intense purple black foliage is finely cut, giving it an effect similar to that of Japanese maple. Creamy pink flowers in spring contrast nicely with the dark leaves. They are followed by blackish red fall berries which can be harvested for making elderberry wine and jam, or left on the plant to attract birds and other wildlife.   Care -Adaptable to most well-drained soils. Requires less frequent watering when established. Tolerates full sun in northern climates, prefers light shade in more southern areas. Hard prune young plants to develop a nice full habit. Blooms on old wood; trim established plants just after flowering.
