Sambucus nigra ‘Black Lace’ has very finely cut, almost black foliage, which is the perfect foil to the pink-flushed blooms. In autumn, its leaves turn a rich red. To produce the best coloured leaves, prune plants back to ground level every year in early spring. It works well when planted on its own or as part of a hedge.
For best results, grow Sambucus nigra ‘Black Lace’ in moist but well drained soil in full sun to partial shade. However, it will tolerate waterlogged or very chalky ground.
