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.

Soil: Not finicky about soil, as long as it is well drained. Tolerates occasional wetness and dryness.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade (4-6 hrs of sun/day).The warmer the climate, the more beneficial shade becomes.
Space: 6-10' apart, depending on your ultimate goal for the plant.
Fertilizing: Little needed. Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring if desired.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended; nothing else is needed.
Maintenance: Avoid cutting plants back/trimming them; rather, prune out branches selectively to attain desired shape. If you want to have berries on your plant, you will need to plant another elderberry of the same species within 50' of this one. Not recommended for hot climates.
