Sambucus racemosa (Red Elderberry)

Attractive flowers and berries

Red Elderberry makes a great wildlife shrub reaching 18 feet in height.   Red elderberry can be found growing in a variety of light and soil types, but sunny,  moist sites seem to be what it grows best in.  Any sunny spot with well draining soil and normal moisture will do.  With its lacy foliage, large white flower clusters, and brilliant red berry clusters, Red Elderberry is a showy shrub.  It makes for an excellent wildlife shrub as the birds truly enjoy the early summer berries.  The uncooked berries of this shrub are poisonous to humans.  Please contact us for pricing and availability.
