Lemony Lace elderberry wins two awards at 2014 Farwest Trade Show

By 2014-08-25

Lemony Lace™ elderberry (Sambucus racemosa) won two awards at the recent Farwest Trade Show in Portland, Oregon: the New Varieties Showcase Award of Merit and The Garden Center Group’s Retailers Choice Award. It’s not surprising to see this new introduction from Proven Winners® ColorChoice® shrubs turn heads: golden yellow, finely-cut foliage is highlighted by red new growth to create eye-catching texture in the landscape – and in the garden center.

Danny Summers, Managing Director for The Garden Center Group, noted, “This distinctive golden, thread-like foliage looks wonderful in mixed borders or as a high-impact specimen plant. Plant it with Black Lace™ elderberry for a really bold statement!”

Better color retention and sun tolerance makes Lemony Lace elderberry a good choice for both full sun and part shade gardens. At 3-5’ tall and wide, it is more compact than ‘Sutherland Gold’ and also features more deeply cut foliage. White spring flowers produce red fruit in fall. This North American native is deer resistant and hardy to USDA Zone 3.

Lemony Lace elderberry liners are available from Spring Meadow Nursery. Look for it at better garden centers in spring 2015.
