Elderberry / Sambucus canadensis / Sureau du Canada, sureau blanc

  The Canada Elderberry is a spectacular shrub, both abundant and decorative. Rapid growth; ripens in autumn. It is a self-pollinating shrub that benefits from being planted with different cultivars. Berries are edible either cooked or dried. The plants are ideal for large commercial operations or for landscaping purposes. Often used as a natural dye and in blended juice production.
