Sambucus Laced Up® Description

Dare to be different - plant Laced Up elderberry (Sambucus nigra). This selection from Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs is unlike anything you've seen before: it naturally grows as a narrow column of finely dissected purple foliage. That columnar habit makes it a true space-saver in the landscape, and it takes up only a few square feet of ground space yet packs in tons of beauty and interest. In early summer, pink flower clusters top the branches. This is definitely a plant that will make passers-by ask, "what is that?!"

If you want berries to form on this elderberry, you need to plant a different variety to pollinate it - you can choose from Black Lace, Black Beauty, and Instant Karma. Plant them anywhere within 50' of another, though closer is preferable to ensure best pollination. Both plants will get berries.

Special features: fragrant, berries, deer resistant, Proven Winners, colorful foliage.
