Lacy Gold and Green Leaves All Summer

Some plants stop you right in your tracks. Elderberry is one of those plants. In our gardens people are always stopping and asking what it is. The sheer intensity of the gold and chartreuse green leaves is really hard to explain and almost impossible to capture in a picture.

Lemon Lace Elderberry (Sambucus racemosa 'SMNSRD4' PPAF) is a grand and spectacular sambucus. The lacy and deeply cut leaves will keep their bright color straight through summer's heat. New leaves open with a slight red tinge, too, which just adds to the appeal. (Speaking of appeal, they even produce deep red berries in autumn which are like catnip to songbirds.)

Lemon Lace makes a gorgeous, no-fuss addition to any foundation, hedge, or border planting. Combine it with burgundy plants, like Tiny Wine Ninebark, and you've got a traffic-stopping showpiece in your garden.

Lemon Lace is a tough plant, too. It is very cold hardy and wind resistant, and deer won't touch it. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, especially in the North. It does great in partial shade in the South. This plant is reliable and easy. It is hardy in a wide range of temperatures, adapts to many different soils, and is able to come back from even severe pruning with ease.

You want Lemon Lace in your zone 3-7 garden. Trust us. You won't be disappointed!

  • Tough plant
  • Gorgeous chartreuse foliage all summer
