Aren’t the breeders krafty, I often say to myself. Take European elder, for instance. This omnipresent shrub grows anywhere, without any maintenance and the more you prune it the thicker it gets. Well, what a promising start for cultivation, someone said. And here we are! So forget this common weed of our countryside and dive in the world of SAMBUCUS, the world of colours, shapes and sizes that, with 10 different varieties, could well do for one complete garden.

Black Lace is a variety of European elder that has lace-like, deep burgundy leaves that look like those of dissectum Japanese maples. Flowers are striking pink panicles that appear in May. Its vigorous growth helps this shrub soon make a dense cover of leaves that are vivid purple in the spring, deep burgundy throughout the summer, and bright crimson in the autumn.

Elder tolerates wide ranges of soil and will be happy of almost any location. By pruning in early spring you will achieve a denser plant, that will be easier to maintain the size and shape. Fully hardy to about -30°C (USDA zone 5), possibly more.
