    Sambucus Nigra, commonly known as Elderberry, is a large 4-6 m tall shrub and grows at a fast rate. Elderberry is known for its fragrant, flat topped, cream flowers that are followed by abundant, edible purple-black berries in September. The flowers are hermaphrodite.

    The shrub is attractor of beneficial insects and hummingbirds. Sambucus nigra occurs naturally across western North America from Canada to Mexico. Elderberry can be used as a windbreak or a living fence. The edible berries are commonly cooked, dried, or used in jams, jellies, pies or preserves. The fruit is also often used to make wine.

    The flowers are also edible. You can eat them either fresh or cooked. They are popular when covered in batter and fried into fritters. They can be pickled if picked when unopened. Also, fresh flowers can be soaked in water to make a refreshing drink. A sweet tea is made from the dried flowers. Grow in full to partial sun. The elderberry can grow in wet to dry soils and tolerates light shade.
