We have had S. 'Black Beauty' for several years and now we have a cut leafed form with dark purple leaves. This shrub has an arching form with the dark foliage and handsome pink flowers in late spring.

Destined to be one of the hot plants of 2007, 'Black Lace' has superlative, finely dissected burgundy-black foliage offering both stunning texture and striking folial colour. Clusters of pink flowers are borne in early summer -- a sight to behold against the foliage! The flowers are followed by blackish-red berries.

sam-BOO-kus NY-grah The lacey dark purple foliage on this useful landscape shrub is reminiscent of deeply cut japanese maples. Blooms for 3-4 weeks. Fruit is also edible to humans, although not considered as flavorful as that of the American elderberry. Deciduous.

PP15,575 BLACK LACE™ is a stunning development in Elderberry breeding. Intense purple black foliage is finely cut, giving it an effect similar to that of Japanese maple. Indeed, some designers are using it in place of the more sensitive acer varieties since BLACK LACE™ is extremely durable and adaptable. Creamy pink flowers in spring contrast nicely with the dark leaves. They are followed by blackish red fall berries which can be harvested for making elderberry wine and jam, or left on the plant to attract birds and other wildlife. BLACK LACE™ is very cold hardy and easy to grow, and adaptable to most sites. Full sun is needed for the best color. It can be used as a dramatic accent plant, planted en masse for a trouble free high hedge, or incorporated into the mixed or perennial border. Left alone it will reach up to 8 feet in height, but BLACK LACE™ can also be pruned back each year to fit into more formal settings. Features: Distinctive lacy foliage all season and soft pink early summer flowers. Season long color and texture. Fall fruit attracts birds. Deer resistant. Tips and Uses: Great as a shrub in the landscape or as a potted shrub on the patio. Good in groupings or masses, or perennial and shrub borders. Makes a nice specimen or screen. Tough enough for roadsides or naturalizing. Good in wet soils. Plant Care: Prefers moist, well-drained. Prune after flowering; leave flower clusters intact for fall fruit. Apply controlled release fertilizer in spring.

Named the "Best New Plant" of 2006 at the NMPro ANLA New Plant Pavilion, this is unlike anything you can put in your garden. With soft pink blooms that age to white and a lemony scent, turning to red berries in the fall above attractive, finely cut, dark purple black foliage. Full sun for best color. Best in moist soil but will take dry. Looks like a purple black Japanese Maple! Tends to grow horizontal with young. Pinch to shape for the first couple of years. PP15575

This dark leaved selection of Elderberry has foliage as lovely as a cutleaf Japanese Maple. It holds its dark hue all season long and is complimented by umbels of fragrant pale pink flowers in early summer. Grows 8-12' tall and wide, but can be cut back hard any time.

Here is your opportunity to fake out your neighbor, this looks like a Japanese maple from afar but only you will know that the chocolate colored, finely dissected leaves on this are Elderberry! Which means not only great foliage, but pink clusters of flowers in late spring and black fruit in fall, exciting in every season. Will grow 3-6' by 6-8' wide.

Also sold under the name Black Lace, this is an elderberry that knows how to behave itself... or so we are told. Leaves are shining black-purple, deeply cut, and layered on a deciduous, somewhat dwarf shrub to 8' tall if left unpruned. Add the contrast of spring flowers in soft pink flowers followed by dark red berries ... berries that are delicious in pies, jams, and pancake syrup! Fu for all seasons. Sun is best and supplemental summer water. Frost hardy in USDA zone 4.
