Beautiful Tough Plant
RGF from MD wrote on April 19, 2020

I bought this plant approximately 4 yrs ago. Planted it in my garden but deer kept eating it and the poor plant could never grow. It is NOT deer resistant. I really thought that it was going to die. Last Fall I decided to dig it up and plant it in a large container on my deck to give it a fighting chance and to keep it from being eaten by deer. It is now Spring and the plant has beautiful lacey leaves growing. It seems as though it will do well in the planter. Hopefully it does not outgrow it in the future.

This specimen arrived very healthy and took to its temporary home very well. The leaves are gorgeous and he's growing very quickly!

Survives Tough Winters - Looks Beautiful
LoriMinnesota from MN wrote on June 30, 2019

After experiencing one of the coldest winters...30 below temps, not wind chill, actual temps for a week, I did not think my this black lace elderberry would make it, as I did not get it planted until late summer. Imagine my surprise when it came up with a lot of new growth and is now flourishing with wild abandon and a poorly protected area in my back garden. This is one tough little cookie, and so beautiful! Looks gorgeous along the back side of my white house! LOVE THIS PLANT!

Exactly what I am looking for

I hope mine gets taller than the 6ft predicted I have smelled the elderberry flowers before and I love the smell I am planting them at the far edge of my property for privacy, I hope the smell is strong enough that I will be able to smell it across the yard. The previous review makes me very I hopeful.
