Sambucus Laced Up, Elderberry
Feathery black foliage covers broomstick-straight stems that shoot toward the sky on Laced Up Elderberry, Sambucus. Other Elderberry varieties, while gorgeous, get massive. Laced Up still gets nice and tall, but only spreads a few feet.
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!
