    Wondering what this small tree is? Deciduous, burgundy narrow leaves, small pink bloom clusters.
    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like Sambucus Nigra. I have Sambucus Nigra 'Black Lace'. Photo attached.

    Yes: they are both 'Eva'.

    Awesome! I can now let the owner know what she has.
    Cheers, LPN.

    It looks really pretty next to the honeysuckle vine on fence.

    Why is it that the same plant is called Sambucus nigra 'Eva', Sambucus nigra 'Eva' BLACK LACE or Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace'? It looks like BLACK LACE is a registered name but I wonder why both names are often given instead of just one.

    I believe Eva is the cultivar name and Black Lace it is known as.(Synonym).

    Never have seen one until I saw this one that I posted. Today, I saw three planted at the old train station in town. Go figure.
    Cheers, Barrie.
