Lemony Lace produces big clusters of white flowers before the finely dissected, cheery gold foliage emerges that ages chartreuse. This deer-resistant plant has little to no maintenance required. It also has bright red fruit that is appealing, although not edible.

  • 3-5 feet tall and wide at maturity
  • Grow in zones 3-7
  • Plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily)

Care: Benefits from hard pruning as a young plant to develop a nice full habit. Older plants can be trimmed after flowering if desired. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food in spring.

        Love these plants!

        First time ordering on line. Packaged and delivered in great shape. Already putting on new growth. Really looking forward to seeing them grow and develop.

        Purchasing from Proven Winners

        I am always completely satisfied at how quickly things are shipped and how well they are wrapped and boxed

        Lemony lace delivery

        Overall, it was a good experience. Two out of 3 Lemony lace broke in half when delivered. So, it looked quite bruised. The one with a stem still in place is doing really well. Perhaps because the plants were squished so tightly into the little box that they were packaged in? The limelight is beautiful and neatly packaged. No issues there!

        Lemony lace elderverry

        I have not yet planted my elderberry as I have just received it. It arrived in good condition and can’t wait to see it perk up and take root. Very happy with my orders from proven winners.
