Find plants that produce black fruit and add interest to the garden, landscape, and containers.
Huge flat clusters of tiny white flowers are followed by a heavy crop of shiny black fruit. The American Elderberry is a large growing native deciduous shrub whose cooked fruit and flowers are used to create healthy and delicious confections, syrup, jelly, wine and more. The nectar rich flower clusters host a wide variety of pollinators and its ripe fruit is sure to attract a host of bird species. Elderberries are dioecious, both male and female at the same time, and may be semi-self fertile but it is best to plant at least two for cross pollination and the heaviest crops. Item #10657
