Sambucus caerulea

Blue elderberry is a Pacific Coast native that is beautiful in all seasons. In the spring, enjoy the many white flower clusters. In the fall, the 15-20 foot spreading, arching bush is covered with large clusters of small powder blue berries that are prized for cooking, jelly and wine. A powdery white coating makes the berries look blue - underneath, they are dark and full of the same high nutrition and immune-boosting properties as their American and European cousins. An amazing, structural bush for hedgerows and screening unsightly views! Self fertile.

USDA Zone: 2-9

Grow Height: 20' (Large)

Ask a Question
  • Should this blue elderberry be planted any distance from black elderberry (S. canadensis) or may that grow near each other?

    They can grow near each other just fine.

  • Wikipedia article on this variety says the blossoms have a strong, unpleasant odor. Is that true? Most elderberries smell nice until they start turning brown.

    Personally I've never considered them unpleasant, so I would say that (apparently) some people might think so, but most people do are not bothered by them.

  • Will this variety pollinate Ranch blueberry?

    No, you will need another S. canadensis to pollinate your Ranch elderberry.
