Black Lace Elderberry

A berry-bearing shrub with colossal 10" clusters of pink blooms, gorgeous lacy foliage and a light lemony scent? Black Lace Elderberry boasts all this—and more. Its delicate, rich purple foliage is so dark that it looks almost black. Its flowers attract butterflies in early summer before producing berries eaten by more than 50 bird species. The shrub is sturdy and easily grown. While it prefers a moist, well-drained soil with a large humus component, it adapts to drier conditions. Because it accepts pruning well, it can be kept at any size, although it flowers more if heavily pruned only every third year. Deer tend to avoid. Ships now, already established in a garden-ready gallon pot. PP15575.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.
