Sambucus canadensis 'Nova'

Nova is an easy-care addition to your edible landscape. Slightly shorter than many S. canadensis varieties, it's a great choice for smaller or urban gardens. Wide clusters of creamy white flowers appear in spring.  If left on the bush, the flowers develop into bountiful bunches of tender, deep purple berries used in jams, jellies, pies, and wines. Syrup made from elderberry is said to stimulate the immune system. Native to North America, these fast-growing bushes also appeal to our wild friends, like bees and hummingbirds, as a food source. Wind pollinated.

Ask a Question
  • You say these are wind pollinated, and then partially self pollinated. What is needed for full pollination?

    In this case another variety of Sambucus canadensis. Filter by "American" and of those will do.

Nova Elderberry

The elderberry plant package arrived intact and was delivered as outlined on tracking. The UPS driver waited until I answered the door bell.
I unpacked it and let it acclimate to my climate for 7 days and then planted.
So far so good. Thank you. Was pleased with your process.

Great looking plant rec'd, looking forward to seeing how it bears.


This little bush was so healthy when it arrived. So many roots and it’s already started leafing.
