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.
