American Elderberry is a multi-trunked shrub that can be pruned into a standard small tree by developing one of the lead trunks. In August the plant forms clusters of white, fragrant flowers that are followed by purplish-black fruit which can be used in syrup, jams, jellies, and even wine.  (Many people use the syrup as a tincture to support the immune system.)  Elderberry prefers full sun, and attracts wildlife, particularly birds and butterflies.
