Finely dissected black foliage. Black Lace® elderberry is a stunning plant with enormous appeal in the landscape. Intense purple black foliage is finely cut, giving it an effect similar to that of Japanese maple (though it is hardier and more durable). Pink flowers in spring contrast nicely with the dark leaves. Plant in full sun for best color.
