Elderberry 'Black Lace'

The 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. Use as a dramatic accent shrub.
