Re: Black Lace Sambucus/now ninebark


Well, somehow I can't help but think you Zone 9 people deserve that ;+)
All those pics we see of things growing in your gardens that we can't grow up here in Zone 5. Now you can covet our Ninebarks!

I have mine planted on the shady side of a red bud tree.  I has
suckered
about 3 feet around it.  I love the little grove it has made
though.  I did
move one to the back yard under a yew shrub that is over 30 years
old and
limbed up.  It is keeping its very dark purple color.
It bloomed some this year but no where as much as my variegated
sambucus.
It is in a lot more sun from the west.  Beautiful!

My Gerda is still pretty dark, no suckers yet.

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.

That's exactly how they market S.n. Black Lace, "...reminiscent
of a
Japanese Maple with its lacy purple-black foliage." - This from
the
wholesaler's catalog when they debuted S.n.'Eva' a couple of
years ago.
It's on the cover of their catalog.

I have this plant, Sambucus nigra "Eva" It is so beautiful. It
has
started
to come up all around it .. little babies but I don't mind, I
would
love
to
try moving some to other places in the yard. I did try root
pruning it
this
year to see if I can move some successfully.
In western Oklahoma I think of it as my Japanese Maple that I
can't
grow.
I
have mine in a lot of shade and maybe it would flower better
if it had
more
sun... but it would need more water then.

We went nursery hopping this morning. We wanted to get some
vegetable
plants--peppers, eggplants, a cherry tomato--and see if there
were any
field-grown pansies left [nope]. We also wanted to kinda look
around
for
ideas. Three junipers have died in one of the street-side
beds and
we're
having a line of five incense cedars along the back fence
limbed up on
Monday, so we've got some interesting areas to think about. So,
mostly,
we were just window shopping.

We saw a black elderberry [Sambucus nigra "Eva," which is
definitely
on
our list to consider planting somewhere].

On the way home, we took a detour and went by Schreiner's iris
nursery.
It's mind blowing. They have a few acres of demonstration
gardens
where
one can wander, picnic, photograph, whatever. Mainly, of
course, it's
a
show case for their irises, but the beds are chock-a- block
flowers--irises, lupines, columbines, poppies, herbaceous
peonies,
delphiniums, alliums... masses of spectacular color every
where you
looked. And, of course, I hadn't brought my camera.
