Customer Questions & Answers

Is the fruit of the black lace sambucus elderberry shrub edible?

Asked by: BerryPicker
Yes, but you have to cook it. Most people use the berries to make syrup, jams or wine. I don't know how the Black Lace compares to other black elderberry varieties as far as taste. Birds can eat the berries right off the tree, they don't have to cook them.

I grew up in Pennsylvania and loved the Elderberry jam and pies that my mother used to make for us. I have been trying to find some Elderberries so that I can end my cravings for my childhood specialities. I came across this plant as I was searching for a tree and could not believe what I was seeing. Can you tell me if this will grow in central Mississippi and if so, is it too late to order it, plant it and still have it thrive and bear fruit?
Asked by: TOMA49
Hi TOMA49, Black Lace Elderberry is hardy in zones 4-7. It looks like Mississippi has hardiness zones ranging from 7-9. You will want to Google "USDA Hardiness Zones Map" and type in your zip code. If your hardiness zone is 7, Black Lace will be able to thrive in your zone. It is not too late to order and give them time to grow. Depending on the size of the shrub, it may or may not bear fruit this year, but you can expect it to the following year if not. If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call at (734) 654-7485. Thanks, Hailee

Is this plant a self pollinator?

Asked by: ed
Hi Ed, The Black Lace Elderberry Sambucus is a self-pollinator. However, planting it by another variety will encourage it to produce even more fruit. Check out our Lemony Lace and Instant Karma Elderberry varieties. If you have any questions, please call our hotline (734) 654- 7485. Best regards, Fallon

Black Lace Elderberry (Sambucus) Live Shrub, Pink Flowers, 1 Gal. is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.

One was just fine, the second one was sideways in the shipping box ,half the dirt was missing & the poor thing was really mangled. I trimmed the broken branches which made it smaller than the first one & got it in the ground immediately so maybe it'll recover from it's abuse. I think someone at some point needs some training about how to handle live plants. When the box has arrows that say "this side up" it needs to be kept that way. Needless to say I was really upset at how this plant was handled.

On may 2nd I wrote a review about the condition of one of the plants I ordered. This had nothing to do with the plants themselves as they're beautiful (at least now). MY complaint was against the handling of the one plant by the delivery company. I waited to see if it could be saved & it's now doing fine. It's smaller because of the trimming I did but by getting it in the ground immediately, & giving it a little shade for a time & I think it will catch up with the one that was undamaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful addition to any yard I love these plants. This is my second black lace elderberry. They grow quickly. I planted mine in a place where it gets a lot of sun but partial shade in the hottest part of the day and it's thriving. Easy to care for and the birds and butterflies love it.
