More Information

Description Everyone will ask, "What's that?" when you add Black Lace® elderberry (Sambucus nigra) to your garden. It's a truly unique looking shrub that makes a statement wherever you plant it between its black, finely cut, lacy foliage and big pink and white flower clusters. Blooms appear in early summer and give off a light, sweet anise scent. They are often used to infuse and flavor water, or you can make your own elderflower champagne. If left on the plant, and a compatible pollinator is nearby, you'll get a crop of black berries that will be relished by birds and other wildlife. Black Lace elderberry from Proven Winners is a versatile plant that can be left to grow into a large shrub, trained into a tree-like habit, or cut back each year to behave more like a foliage perennial (if you choose this method, do note that it won't flower, as it blooms on old wood). It's really up to your imagination how to use this striking plant! If you want berries to form on this elderberry, you need to plant a different variety to pollinate it - you can choose from Black Beauty, Instant Karma, and Laced Up. Plant them anywhere within 50' of another, though closer is preferable to ensure the best pollination. Both plants will get berries. *Berries should only be used for ornamental purposes, not to be ingested. Details Botanical name: Sambucus nigra 'Eva'

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 & Pruning: 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.

Bad delivery - can't give a rating.

We had been on vacation and got back in the early evening the day the elderberries were delivered. The delivery man left them out in the heat, temps of triple digits. The plants were fried, but we unpackaged them and watered them and babied them. One was a gift, one was for us. We planted the one for us after it started putting out a little bit of new growth, but we got hit with a week of triple digit temps and it didn't survive.

Hello! We're sorry to hear about your plants. Please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

Black lace elderberry

The up side is, it is alive! The down side is, it doesn't look too pleased. The lemon elderberry, which is planted about 10 feet away, is doing much better. I am hoping the plant is moping because fall is coming, but I am not the best gardener, and I feel worried!
