The Deep Purple Black Lace Elderberry

If you want to add mystery and beauty to your garden, you have to plant a Black Lace Elderberry (Sambucus nigra 'Eva' P.P.). It takes the traditional notion of an elderberry and throws it out the window. It says, "no way!" to vibrant green leaves, white flowers, and dark berries. And it says "hello" to unbelievable deep purple leaves and pale pink flowers!

The Black Lace Elderberry would rather wear dark purple than green any day! And you can't blame it. This shrub looks stunning with its almost-black foliage. The elegant leaves are almost as ornate as real black lace.

And this lovely plant knows how to bring the drama with its light pink clusters of flowers that almost seem to shine against its violet leaves. With these pretty blossoms, summer may become your favorite time of year.

This plant knows about fall fashion, too. It’s fun flowers step aside, and rich red berries begin to appear. The birds enjoy these juicy little berries, but don't let them eat all of them. You'll want some, too. Like other elderberries, these make fabulous wine and tasty preserves.

The Black Lace Elderberry plant thrives in wet or moderately wet soilm dry soil just won't do. Because this shrub likes to keep its roots wet, let it sing in the rain in your rain garden.

Its compact size makes it the perfect choice for almost any spot you want to plant it. While it naturally develops into a small tree, you can keep it as a shrub by pruning it to fit your taste and space.

Add excitement to your yard by using the Black Lace Elderberry as a hedge or foundation plant. This unique beauty even makes an ideal specimen plant or tree.

When this amazing plant first came onto the scene, it won "Best Plant of the Year," and its reputation hasn't wavered. Planting some Black Lace Elderberry is a no-brainer if you want beauty, berries, and excitement in your yard! Order yours today!

  • Unique Black-Violet Foliage
