Elderberry Black Lace

Genus: Sambucus.

Species: Sambucus Nigra, Black Lace..

If you are growing the plant for its foliage alone, then you can give it a hard prune in early spring, but if you want it to produce flowers as well, then once established, you should cut down half the stems (the older ones) to ground level in winter, and then shorten the remaining stems by half.
