FEED THE WILDLIFE, BIRDS & YOURSELF WITH NUTRIENT-RICH FRUITS
Elderberries yield fruits that are highly nutritious. They are an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants for humans. Wildlife also enjoy the fruits. Research has shown that the berries from the elderberry can strengthen the immune system to fight viruses. The multi-stemmed shrubs, 8 feet tall and 3 feet wide have landscape interest as well. Large creamy white flowers attract butterflies and other nectar loving birds. Plants produce clusters of black fruit that drape each branch. Fall color is outstanding, yellow to red-orange foliage that sparkles the landscape.
This native elderberry displays showy white blooms in early summer and produces abundant small fruits. The fruit clusters will vary from 3 to 6 inches in diameter. Plants grow to 8 and 10 feet tall. Elderberry fruit can be used as a healthy juice, jams, pies, and other dessert.
