Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace' A stunning form of the familiar Black Elder is primarily a foliage plant whose deeply cut, jet-black leaves present themselves in graceful, fern-like fans. Plants are broadly arching and reach 6-8 ft in height, perhaps 5 wide, and make superb specimens for many situations. Large pink flowers in June lead, in due course, to black berries (we've not eaten them, but the birds do). Because plants are dead hardy through all of Zone 5, and into 4, they provide a very welcome alternative to Japanese Maples where exquisite foliage is needed but harsh temperatures prevail. For best shape and foliage, prune hard in early spring and provide even moisture. A remarkably beautiful plant that cleaned up the prizes at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2003
