Lacy golden foliage.
Lemony Lace® elderberry is a super-showy cut leaf selection of our native Sambucus racemosa. The bright golden foliage is highly dissected and emerges with a colorful red hue. The foliage is more deeply cut than 'Sutherland Gold' or Black Lace®, resulting in a dense, irregular mound with extremely fine texture. White flowers appear in very early spring, before the leaves emerge, and produce red fruit in fall. Will tolerate full sun in northern climates, but prefers light shade in warmer areas.

Growing Tips The fruit of red elderberry is not edible for humans, though it is quite colorful and enjoyed by birds.
Check your local invasive species list before buying any new plants. Dormancy notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow. Photos are for reference only and are of mature trees.
