Black Lace #Elderberry can be grown as large #shrubs or small #trees. It has intense, dark purple (almost black) foliage. In summer, creamy #pink #flowers cover the shrub and shine against the deep leaf color. In fall, the flowers give way to edible deep red berries that can be used like typical elderberries, in wines and jams. If you leave them on the plant your #garden will be rewarded by the #birds that will come to take them off of your hands.
