Sambucus Lemony Lace® Description

Lemony Lace® elderberry (Sambucus racemosa) will add color to your landscape! This unique native elderberry begins its show in earliest spring, when big, white flower clusters emerge from red buds. This happens well before the foliage emerges and makes for a truly unique look. Soon after, sunny yellow leaves emerge, and all are finely dissected for a lacy look. The effect is both colorful and textural, and we think it’s a great alternative to Japanese maples in areas where they can’t be grown.

Lemony Lace elderberry was introduced by Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs, who selected it not just for its wonderful foliage and flowers but also because it is just half the size of conventional red elderberries, making it perfectly suited to home gardens and landscapes.

Special features: Foliage plant, Deer resistant, Attracts pollinators, Native plant
