Elderberry "Black Lace"

An Elderberry tree is fast growing with very light wood growing to 4-5m tall. This cultivar has richly coloured burgundy black foliage, and ladened with pinky white flower clusters (elderflower) that turn into black berries (elderberries).  When happy, it will tend to form many trunks. Both the flowers and the berries are used to make a variety of cordials, wines, relishes, jams, teas and medicines.

This is a specially selected form of the common elderberry (not available this year) but otherwise its much the same.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
