Laced Up® Elderberry

You’ve never seen an elderberry like Laced Up® before: it combines a striking fastigiate habit with lacy, near-black foliage. The effect is something like a flock of birds taking flight. Pink flowers in early summer turn to black fruit if a pollinator like Black Lace® or Instant Karma® elderberry is planted nearby.
