Beautiful shrub, good size, growing well.
Sambucus racemose Lemony Lace®
- Vibrant foliage
- New leaves are red
Sambucus nigra 'Lemony Lace' has bright white flowers that bloom all summer long. The blossoms compliment the golden yellow foliage. New leaves emerge red. Reddish-black berries are produced in the fall for extended interest. It can be easily cut back after flowers are done to help maintain a more compact habit.
Uses: Borders, Mass Planting

The shrub grew well through most of the summer but towards the end of summer and into the fall partially died back. I'm assuming that after pruning in the spring it will rebound.
