Black Lace Elderberry is a fruit producing deciduous shrub with an loosely upright habit and deeply cut purple foliage on purple stems that mature to grey.  Clusters of tiny pink lemon-scented flowers bloom in summer before giving way to edible black-purple fruits.  Prefers full sun and moist, humisy well-drained soil.  While self-fruiting, the fruit yields would increase with multiple plants.
