Noted for its golden foliage, Sambucus racemosa Lemony Lace® (Elderberry) is a compact, deciduous shrub adorned with a luminous lacy foliage of deeply dissected leaves. Emerging bright yellow with red edges in spring, the foliage turns attractive chartreuse and forms a dense, irregular mound of extremely fine texture. In mid-spring, abundant clusters of white flowers are produced before the leaves. They give way to red fruit that attracts birds in the fall. Colorful from spring through fall, this easy-to-grow shrub looks wonderful in mixed borders or as a high-impact specimen plant. Will tolerate full sun in northern climates, but prefers light shade in warmer areas.
