'Lemony Lace™' Elderberry

Sambucus racemosa

A bright and stylish plant with an easy-going nature.

Lemony Lace® offers finely dissected foliage but in a cheery gold color to really light up your landscape. This North American native produces big clusters of white flowers in early spring before the foliage emerges, then bright yellow leaves take over, edged in red. As the foliage ages, it turns an attractive chartreuse. Fine, thread-like foliage exhibits colorful reddish new growth. More deeply cut than others, creating a compact, shaggy mound with exquisite texture. White spring flowers produce red fruit in the fall, making it a good addition to wildlife gardens. Though it is a large plant, it can be pruned to stay smaller if you'd like.
