Elderberry

Smaller Shrub with Juicy Fruit!


Enjoy lots of juicy berries on a more manageable shrub. These new cultivars from Denmark grow just 6- to 8-ft. tall. In early summer, the vigorous plants are covered with gorgeous tiny white flowers.

Plant two varieties for improved pollination Both Samyl and Samdal produce large fruit clusters, with Samyl being higher-yielding. Zones 3-7.
