This is a variety of Elderberry that is found growing wild in Brush Hills, Oklahoma. The harvest season is two and three weeks later than other major cultivars. Wyldewood has high vigor. When the plants are grown in warmer climates or have a longer growing season, the plants can be mowed to the ground after dormancy as a method of pruning. The new primocane stems will yield fruits in the following year. Plants are productive with large cymes of fruit. Hardiness Zones 3-8.

We decided to plant an elderberry grove this spring. After taking a class on elderberry cultivation, we settled on 4 varieties, Bob Gordon, Wyldewood, Ranch and Wild/native cultivars from both our home state of TN and NC. I’ve been impressed with the growth of all of the varieties we purchased. The elderberries we received from Hartmann’s came in great condition and took off like wildfire once planted. Highly recommended and looking forward to a good harvest of these beautiful berries next year!
