  • BLACK LACE® Elderberry

    This cutleaf elderberry has the color and texture of Japanese maple, but is much more adaptable. The pink flowers will produce black fruit in fall that can be used for jams or wine, or left for songbirds to enjoy. This durable plant can be used as a specimen in mixed borders or Rain gardens. If cut back in early spring it can be used like a perennial for foliage interest (flowers appear on old wood.) This adaptable plant will tolerate clay soils, black walnut, and occasional dry conditions. It is deer-resistant.

  • LACED UP® Elderberry

    You’ve never seen an elderberry like Laced Up® before: it combines a striking fastigiate habit with lacy, near-black foliage. The effect is something like a flock of birds taking flight. Pink flowers in early summer turn to black fruit if a pollinator like Black Lace® or Instant Karma® elderberry is planted nearby.

  • LEMONY LACE® Elderberry

    Super detailed leaves and eye-catching coloring give Lemony Lace elderberry undeniable landscape presence. Its foliage groups in interesting ways, giving the plant an irregular mounded habit. This rather elegant irregularity is highlighted by the different colors the foliage takes on at different stages of maturity. It emerges a pretty burgundy in early spring, turns to lemony yellow, and softens to chartreuse or lime green depending on the sun exposure it receives.

    Aesthetically, it can easily slip into any garden style, perhaps a Japanese-style garden, mimicking a carefully trimmed maple or a tropical-style garden that celebrates bright colors. Its care is just as easy to manage. Leave it alone, and it’ll produce white flowers in spring and red berries by fall. Cut it down each spring, and it will act as a sort of perennial. Practically speaking, it’s resistant to sunburn, deer, and black walnut! Giving you the confidence you need to plant it even in the trickiest spots.

    Why grow Lemony Lace elderberry?

    • Fabulous color throughout the growing season
    • Tough landscape performance
    • Fine texture perfect for contrasting with other plants

    INSTANT KARMA® Elderberry

    A very showy variegated elder, this plant provides season-long color to landscapes. The blue-green leaves have crisp variegation that starts out gold in the spring before turning cream as the season progresses. The white flowers will produce black fruit if planted near another variety (Black Lace® is a good choice). Although it was not selected for its fruit production it will provide some berries for songbirds. This is a more stable plant than older variegated cultivars, and has more blue in the foliage.
