I have read that Red Elderberry plants are reasonably deer resistant. Do you know if the varieties you sell are similarly deer resistant?
Krista E on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Planted 6 plants last may and all have survived quite nicely. The plants seem relatively easy to establish and have shown solid growth for one year. While we have a healthy deer population, they have not impacted the plants to date. If in doubt, I recommend fencing the plants until they are established. Better safe than sorry. RH
are Elderberry plants shipped in pots or barefoot?

Elderberry
All of the elderberry plants I ordered are doing great. This is their first year, so is hard to know what they will continue to do but they are about to burst into bloom now. thanks I am very happy with them.

Happy in the shade
I planted three of these under a Cedar Elm. I think they get too much shade but they are staying alive and even coming up as new plants from under ground shoots a foot or so from the main plant. They don't get any attention but are holding on really well, especially for our hot summers.
