Discovered is Eufaula, Oklahoma in 1995, it forms a staple of a regional Elderberry industry. Wyldewood and other Sambucus canadensis or "American" elders have proven to have all the wonderful healthful properties of their European brethren (Sambucus nigra). It needs another S. canadensis for pollination and the berries ripen a couple 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.
