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!
