Elderberry ‘Black Lace'(Sambucus nigra ‘Black Lace’)西洋接骨木
This type is a common deciduous flowering shrub, very hardy and easy to grow. This variety ‘Black Lace’ has more interesting foliage texture. Fragrant pink flowers and fruit are good for beverage and attract birds, but rest of plant is rather toxic. 😦
Mature height is about 6′-8′, better to thin the leaves and branches after it flowered otherwise the weight will make it droopy. And because it tolerant heavy pruning so cut back low before winter.
Best in full sun to partial shade location. USDA Zones: 4-7.
Lots of recipes on line if you would like to make beverage with elderberry flowers or fruit. Have fun! 🙂
這種西洋接骨木是開花性的灌木,株高約6-8呎. 全日照或半日照,粉紅色的花有香味,果實小成熟會轉成黑色,果實和花都可用於茶飲可是其他部位的植物倒是毒性不小. 連鳥類也喜食它成熟的果實.
由於它耐強剪所以花期後最好修剪才不會看起來因枝葉的重力塌塌的. 過冬前可以強修剪. 網上可以找到一些用它的花或果制做成茶飲的食譜,有興趣的人可以試著做做看! 🙂
