Sambucus Black Lace®

Item #36998


Pink Blooms Pop Against the Dark Leaves

The perfect substitute for a Japanese Maple

Blooming in the early summer, clusters of delicate pink flowers give way to vibrant red berries in autumn. The deep charcoal leaves serve as the perfect backdrop for the eye-catching blooms and berries. Sambucus Black Lace® is an ever-changing beauty that entices colorful songbirds, adding even more cheer to your garden.

Reaching 6 feet tall and 8 feet wide, this shrub is a great size for a variety of landscape uses. With 6-inch wide clusters of blooms that pop against the black foliage, this is the showstopper of any hedge, specimen, foundation, or border.

Growing in Zones 4 to 7, "The Japanese Maple of the North," keeps its beauty through low temperatures, strong winds, and even partial shade. It's easy to see why Black Lace™ has become a sensation in Western Europe, where it is the "it" shrub to grow.
