Black Lace™ Elderberry Growing and Maintenance Tips

It grows best in a moist soil but will become more drought tolerant as it ages. Heavy pruning in the first few years will strengthen the plant and prevent it from becoming leggy. Fruits are edible, but must be cooked. Uncooked berries may induce illness.
