Award winning selection has striking purple-black lacy foliage in full sun. In warmer climates (zone 8), in our experience, the deeply cut foliage is striking, but not quite as dark. Flowers are pink and up to 6" across, making a handsome show against the foliage. Purple berries will delight your songbirds. Black Lace will self-pollinate but will achieve greater fruit production when another variety of Sambucus nigra is planted in the area. A Proven Winner Selection.
