Sambucus Lemony Lace® an enchanting, no-fuss addition to a foundation, hedge, or border planting. The chartreuse, ferny foliage makes Sambucus Lemony 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.

You will fall in love with the extremely fine foliage as Sambucus Lemony Lace® opens up in spring tinged with red edges.

Sambucus Lemony Lace® is a survivor, being very cold hardy, wind resistant, and even unpalatable to deer. Plant Sambucus Lemony Lace® in well-drained soil in full sun in the North and partial shade in the South. This plant is easy and reliable, being hardy in many temperatures, adaptable to many soils, and able to bounce back from even severe pruning.

I love this bush. the color and design of the leaves are beautiful. I bought in the spring and already has grown 2 feet. I do not know how to prepare for the winter so my tree will not get damaged. please advise.
