Black Lace has intense purple-black foliage that is finely cut like lace. Its soft pink flowers bloom in early summer then make way for elderberries, which can be harvested for making wine and jam. It attracts birds and resists deer. To produce berries, you'll need a Black Beauty, Instant Karma, or Laced Up elderberry as a pollinator.

Black Lace reaches 6-8 feet tall and wide at maturity. It is hardy in zones 4-7, plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily). Best if pruned immediately after blooming. May be pruned to the ground each year and grown like a perennial. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food in spring.

*According to the Humane Society of America, elderberry can be toxic to pets if consumed.

Our shrub 3-pack includes an auger! An auger is the best tool for digging holes for small plants, digging in clay soil, loosening soil, weeding, bulb planting, and more. Hex end prevents slippage & tightly grips drill-head for easy tilling. 

  • 8.5 in long and 1.5 in wide (rod is ½ cm thick) 
  • 3/8" bit fits almost every handheld drill 

Auger Safety

  • Call Miss Dig #881 before using auger
  • Never use auger at high drill speed
  • Use clutch on drill to avoid drill spin or kickback
  • Serious injury may result in misuse of auger

1 gallon shrubs are 6-24 inches tall at shipment and quart shrubs are 5-8 inches tall at shipment depending on the season and plant.
