Laced Up® Elderberry

Sambucus nigra

An elderberry like no other!

Beautiful elderberries like Black Lace® and Black Beauty® have long been some of our most popular varieties – but as fairly large plants, not everyone has space for them. Enter Laced Up® elderberry, an amazing narrow, upright variety that takes up only a few square feet of ground. Feathery black foliage covers broomstick-straight stems that shoot toward the sky but stay in a narrow column. Early summer brings hundreds of pink flowers to contrast with the leaves. It’s an exotic looking plant that’s surprisingly hardy and easy to grow! Available in better garden centers in spring 2018. This plant was formerly known as Strait Laced® elderberry.

Top reasons to plant Laced Up® elderberry:

  • Columnar habit takes up far less space than other elderberries
  • Elegant, feathery black foliage provides unmatched color and texture
  • Pink flowers in early summer
