Description
This striking Elder boasts finely-cut, dark burgundy leaves that turn to vibrant red in autumn. The eye-catching foliage contrasts beautifully with the fragrant pink flowers that are borne in profusion from early summer. As summer ends the flowers are replaced by clusters of glossy black fruits which are loved by birds. Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Black Lace' is versatile and easily grown in most conditions, although full sun will produce the best leaf colour. This hardy, deciduous shrub makes an attractive addition to borders, woodlands and wildlife gardens. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The flowerheads are commonly used in infusions, making a very common drink and can be made into a syrup or cordial. They can also be dipped into a light batter and then fried to make elderflower fritters. Both flowers and berries can be made into elderberry wine. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Grow Sambucus in any moist but well drained soil in full sun or dappled shade, plants will also survive on poor, chalky soils.
More Info
Sambucus plants require very little pruning except for general maintenance and shaping in winter. However, if they become too large after a few years, they will also respond well to hard, restrictive pruning. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
