No Space for Classic Elderberry?
Lace up your gardening gloves, as this statuesque knockout with its narrow, upright habit can be placed ringside. This winning variety packs a combination punch with its stunning feathery-black foliage and oodles of pink flower clusters. Broomstick-straight stems shoot skyward but stay in a narrow column. Sambucus Laced-Up® with its unmatched color and texture will produce black fruit if placed near Sambucus Black Lace®, Black Beauty® or Instant Karma®. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.

Sambucus General Information

Sambucus nigra is a deciduous multi-stemmed shrub grown primarily for foliage color. Ornamental fruit will develop in autumn if a pollinator is near. Prefers a moist soil but will adapt to dry soils. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Sambucus Plant Care

Responds well to hard pruning each spring while dormant. Cut back older stems to the ground and one-year old wood by 1/2. Remove suckers at the base as they appear. Sambucus blooms on old wood.
