Description

  • Striking purple-black dissected foliage
  • Clusters of pink flowers in late spring
  • Attracts birds and pollinators
  • Low maintenance

Sambucus 'Black Lace' is an attractive deciduous shrub with real presence. Deeply dissected purple-black foliage forms a fantastic foil for the clusters of pink flowers that appear in late spring, followed by dark red berries in autumn. Bees will come for the flowers and birds for the berries.

With its dark foliage, Sambucus ‘Black Lace’ makes a striking focal point in a border, and looks especially good next to the silver-grey foliage of lavender or buddleja.

For the best foliage colour, plant in full sun, in a fertile, moist but well-drained soil. Water regularly in the first year after planting while the plant is getting established.

For the best flowers, prune lightly in late winter only if needed to remove damaged, crossing or awkwardly-placed shoots. For bigger foliage (but fewer flowers), cut back to ground level in early spring. Mulch after pruning with a generous layer of garden compost or well-rotted farmyard manure.
