Sambucus canadensis – Elderberry

SKU 5000610 Categories , Tags ,

A must have for the backyard homesteader, Elderberry is gaining popularity in the landscape. In addition to being a great shrub, it produces beautiful white flowers and edible berries (usually to tart to eat by themselves) that are used in jams, jellies, pies and many healthy tonics. Birds will consume the berries.

Summer Shipping Concerns

Please expect some delays in shipping during summer months!

Shipping perishable items in the heat of summer can be tricky to say the least. Our goal is to try to get your plants to you in the best shape possible.

This means we may hold off on shipping items during periods of excessively high temperatures to give your new plants the best chance of surviving their journey in good shape.
