Beautiful black foliage. BLACK LACE® Elderberry  Sambucus Nigra Shrubs is a stunning plant with enormous appeal at retail and in the landscape. Intense purple-black foliage is finely cut, giving it an effect similar to that of Japanese maple (though it is harder and more durable). Pink flowers in spring contrast nicely with the dark leaves. Plant in full sun for the best color.

Check your local invasive species list before buying any new plants.

General Care


Soil is Extremely adaptable to soil pH and moisture levels.

Pruning Blooms on old wood. However, pruning after bloom will remove the potential for fruit to set.

Uses Grow either as a shrub or cut it back every year and make it into a bold perennial. Outstanding as a specimen, but also good in groupings and masses, perennial and shrub borders, as a specimen or screen.

Growing Tips If the fruit is desired, plant with Black Beauty, Instant Karma, or Laced Up elderberry. Both flowers and ripe berries are edible; however, foliage and stems are toxic.
