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.

USDA Zone: 4-9

Grow Height:  8' (Medium)

Ask a Question
  • Is this plant toxic

    All elderberries contain cyanogenic glycosides that, if consumed raw in large enough amounts, can result in a nausea, vomitting, and diarreha. To avoid this, cook the berries before consuming and the cyanogenic glycosides will be neutralized making them a safe and healthful food.

VERY hardy & healthy!

I used my work address for the shipment so they would get immediate treatment. However, unfortunately I was out sick and the plants sat in my office for a full week in their box.
I took them home and doused them overnight in a pal of water after drenching the leaf portion. Bingo - rejuvenated!
