Re: Black Lace Sambucus


Tricia.... or anyone...
   
Just how much suckering is yours doing? Is it staying right next to the
plant or all over? How long have you had it? Is it keeping it's dark
leaves or do you find the species showing up in it?

   
I had thought about buying this last year. Read somewhere that if not in
the right conditions it would be more dark green rather than the
black/purple... also that it might end up running thru a large area.
