This spectacular Sambucus offers deeply cut, lacy leaves of gold and green that keep their color right through summer's heat, and even produces deep red berries that attract songbirds in autumn. Lemony Lace™ an enchanting, no-fuss addition to a foundation, hedge, or border planting. The chartreuse, ferny foliage makes Lemon Lace™ a whimsical addition to a Fairy or Gnome-themed garden.

While Sambucus nigra produces showy flowers, this Sambucus racemosa produces smaller white flowers and focuses more of its energy on creating fine foliage instead. Growing 3 to 5 feet high and 3 to 6 feet wide, this elderberry bush is an excellent addition to the ranks of any mixed border, hedge, or woodland-themed garden. You will fall in love with the extremely fine foliage as it opens up in spring tinged with red edges.

This plant is easy and reliable, being hardy in many temperatures, adaptable to many soils, and able to bounce back from even severe pruning. Zones 4 to 7.
