Sambucus nigra Black Lace has dark, almost black leaves that are deeply incised. The plant has six months ornamental value. A bonus is the rich spring bloom, the many light pink flowers stand in large screens. Edible blackcurrants follow after flowering. Black Lace is a beautiful solitary shrub that can also be combined well in fixed plant borders. Pruning is well tolerated so that the large plant can also be used in small gardens. Fully hardy. Very suitable for container cultivation.
