Sambucus Nigra Black Lace 3L Pot
1 x Sambucus Nigra Black Lace 3L Pot
Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace' is bushy and reaches approximately 3 metres height and 2 metres spread at maturity, but can be pruned back to keep it smaller. It grows well in partial shade but full sun produces the best foliage colours. This Black Elder is a fantastic and unusual choice with the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
To produce the best coloured leaves, prune plants back to ground level every year in early spring. It works well when planted on its own or as part of a hedge.
For best results, grow Sambucus nigra ‘Black Lace’ in moist but well drained soil in full sun to partial shade. However, it will tolerate waterlogged or very chalky ground.
