Description from Johnson’s Nursery: American Elderberry is a large, sprawling, Wisconsin native shrub with bright green leaves, white clusters of fragrant flowers, and juicy, edible black fruits. Elderberry blooms at a time of year when little else is. This native species can tolerate low, wet areas that others cannot. It’s perfect for those wanting a natural look and plenty of wildlife-friendly features! May also be known as American Elder or simply Elderberry.
