'Elderberry' is currently unavailable.
Elderberry is a lovely shaped deciduous shrub or small tree to 6 metres tall by 3 metres wide with glossy deep green pinnate leaves and sprays of fragrant tiny white flowers. The flowers are followed by clusters of purple/black berries in March-April. The berries are used in pies, jams and jellies; while both the flowers and fruit are used to make wine or liqueurs. It is an undemanding plant that is frost resistant and thrives well in most temperate regions with moist, fertile soil.
