'Black Lace' certainly lives up to its name. Large flat lacy pinkish-white flower heads float above a cloud of inky purple-black finely divided foliage. The pleasantly scented flowers give way to small dark edible berries that wildlife enjoy. Whether standing on its own, or being used as a backdrop, this plant is a stunning addition to the landscape, and is a recipient of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit.
