An under-appreciated, attractive native shrub with fragrant white flowers and dark purple to black fruit valued by many bird species. Elderberry helps our native bees and other beneficial insects as well. Grows quickly in thickets up to 15 feet high and tolerates a wide variety of wet to dry soils, but prefers rich, moist, slightly acid soil. Fruits are edible when fully ripe and cooked. However, unripe fruit and other plant parts are toxic.
