Elder "Black Lace"


Elder "Black Lace"

Planted last year this shrub died back like a perennial in the winter but shot up in late spring, no flowers this year :(

I planted this one earlier in the year but no flowers this spring. Waiting eagerly to see what it does next year!

I like these. There seem to be a lot of variation as to how finely divided the leaves are. Some are more than yours and others are less. I think they make a lovely combination with paler colours like your fern.

Should be clusters of pale pink flowers which would look fantastic against the dark purple leaves.

Lovely! Looks like this would work for me in a container on my deck. Is it a part shade plant?

Better have a big container, these shrubs can be 6 to 8 feet tall and as wide..I think it prefers full sun but I have put it on the north side of my house in part shade....might be why it didnt flower
