Nova Elderberry

Available

Ships Bare-Root.

Description

An easy-care addition to the edible landscape. Wide clusters of creamy white flowers appear in spring, making wonderful components for bouquets or for dipping in batter and making fritters. If left on the bush, the flowers develop into bountiful bunches of tender, deep purple berries used in jams, jellies, pies, and wines. Being native to North America, these fast-growing bushes also appeal to wildlife, like bees and hummingbirds, as a food source. Cold hardy. Ripens in early August. Best pollinator: York. For successful growing and fruit production, plant Nova and York varieties 6-8' apart, so they will pollinate one another.
