Just bought Sambucus Nigra "Black Lace" 30cm tall

That's great, thanks everyone for your advice. Yes, I did think it would get lost in the middle of the lawn, especially if we get a wet spell and can't get the grass cut! Also pleased to hear it should be fairly quick growing. The flowers look spectacular, but would it maybe be a year or two before we would expect it to flower? Hope there are no crested newts in mine!! Good tip about the mulch too.

Thank you. Would you advise putting bark round it so it stands out a bit just incase! Also, will this variety stand up ok to the north winds?

Please,does anyone know how quickly the Sambucus nigra "Black Lace"  grows in a year? Bought it from Garden centre yesterday, 30cm tall. Want to plant it in front garden lawn but looks so tiny. How much is it likely to increase in height this summer? We live in the Moray coast. Is it best to leave it in pot for this year or plant it out? If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.Thank you.

How much will Sambucus grow this summer? Keep in pot or plant out now?
