Wyldewood Elderberry

FG icon
SKU E038

Sambucus canadensis 'Wyldewood'

Selected from the wild in Eufaula, Oklahoma in 1995, it forms a staple of their current regional elderberry industry. Wyldewood and other S. canadensis or "American" elders have proven to have all the wonderful healthful properties of their European brethren (Sambucus nigra). It prefers another S. canadensis for pollination and the berries ripen a couple of weeks after Bob Gordon, and produces for a month. Wyldewood elderberry thrives throughout most of the nation. It can be cut back to the ground each year if desired and will produce fruit on new wood.

Another S. canadensis planted nearby will increase yields on both plants.
