These sweet little flowers are from the Sambucus nigra, Black Lace. The flowers popped later than the standard Elderflowers and are very much smaller – just a few millimetres in diameter. It is a really lovely plant which provides lots of interest: finely cut purple-red leaves which look golden-red in sunlight; sweet little buds and flowers; and berries in Autumn. I highly recommend it. They can grow pretty large though – his one has grown to about 10-12 feet tall in just a few years.
