Lemony Lace Elderberry Purple Buds - Spring - April 2023
That photo above shows a new (to me) bud from a shrub that I bought on a whim last fall: Lemony Lace Elderberry. And, isn't that the most delightful sign of Spring? It looks....alien. Doesn't it? Purple and lime green, ball and fringe. All in one package.
I had these protected from rabbits with a chicken-wire cage and that seems to have worked. See below for the current state of this shrub:
This is one to watch, since it is the first full growing season. Maybe I'll add more of these - via the Morton Arboretum Plant Sale - as I see them there every year. They work in 'part shade' - which has a lot of value in our garden.
