Not long ago Hunky Gardener from Guy Meets Garden asked me to post pictures of my Black Lace Sambucus. I floundered this long because my Black Lace isn't so BLACK .. more brown but not from impending death .. this sucker is still alive but refuses to turn that gorgeous blackish colour it is supposed to be .. could be lack of watering regularly .. could be it just doesn't like me too. I just saw it appraised on a garden show as being an all purpose plant loving where ever you put it .. well .. there could be other places I COULD put it ? .. but I'm too nice to say ? haha
It does however foli against my gorgeous Artemisia ludoviciana ‘Valerie Finnis’ and "Blue Star" juniper, plus a white carnation with blue gray foliage. Then throw in a touch of Harvest Moon Echinacea and Pixie Meadowbrite.. well why the heck isn't it happy with all this great company ? .. I just don't know but I will be WATCHING it next year and it better start behaving !
