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.
Soils: Prefers well drained, moist soil.
Sun: Full sun, partial shade
