Product information "European Red Elder 'Golden Lace'®"

European red elder 'Golden Lace'® stands out above all due to its great leaves: they first shine in a yellow colour and later in a bright yellow green. In addition, they score with their elegant form. Each leaf consists of seven, deeply-cut leaflets.
Flowers and fantastic fruit decoration

In May, the cream white, fragrant flowers are together in dense panicles. Small, scarlet drupes develop from them. They also make a very nice colour contrast to the yellow autumn foliage. As with the black elderberry, they are inedible when raw, but can be processed into juice or jam. They are also a welcome autumn and winter food for songbirds.
A robust, small shrub

Sambucus racemosa 'Golden Lace'® is reliable hardy, vigorous, undemanding and it tolerates pruning. It thrives in the sun or partial shade and can cope with almost any garden soil, whether sandy, loamy or humus-rich. Only calcareous soils are not ideal for this plant.
A versatile eye-catcher

In the garden, the yellow-coloured Sambucus racemosa with its glowing leaves and red fruits is an unmistakable eye-catcher. It lightens dark garden areas visually and with its compact size of up to 150 cm it fits into each garden bed. You can also achieve beautiful colour contrasts by combining it with red-leaved shrubs and perennials. Or you can plant Sambucus racemosa 'Golden Lace'® in an elegant planter and decorate your terrace, patio or entrance area.
