Purple and lacinated, a very decorative elder

Variété Star

Description

This elder is very elegant thanks to its big, deep purple, nearly black, finely dissected leaves. The young shoots are green. The shrub tolerates half shade, but planting it in full sun, emphasizes the beautiful colour of the foliage.
Its growth is medium.
In June, BLACK LACE is covered in flat, pink buds, getting paler at the opening stage to become a creamy white. The contrast to the dark foliage is remarkable.
At the end of summer, the dark purple then black berries are appreciated by the birds.
Its purple and lacinated foliage, its abundant flowers and berries make it an decor for the garden. BLACK LACE should be planted individually or in free growing shrub-hedges, together with evergreens, for example.

Care

A regular annual trimming enhances the foliage; for a good show of flowers, trimming is advised in the early spring by renewing the branches.
