American Elderberry- Sambucus canadensis
The fruits of this Elderberry are sweeter and larger than other cultivars. The plants are vigorous and productive. This cultivar can be mowed to the ground after dormancy and fruits can be harvested in the following year on primocane stems. Yields are high, and plants appear to have some resistance to Japanese Beetle. Elderberries are a multi-stemmed shrub growing to about 10 feet tall and 3 feet wide.
