I got them to make a screen/natural fence at my back yard. And to make juice, jelly and a natural cough syrup.

Who doesn't love Elderberries? I planted mine in the hopes of making some experimental liquor/wine in the many years to come. The spring blooms are beautiful too. These are very hardy plants and are thriving here in my mid Missouri yard.

I grew up with Elderberry bushes and my Mom made jelly! It is the best jelly in the world. I want to relive that with my own!

Aside from having a real taste for Elderberries, I ordered from Starks based upon years of success with plants I have ordered form them.

Wanted fruit bearing bushes to make a barrier at the edge of our property. This is a low lying area that gets more water.

Elderberries are highly medicinal and honey bees love them

Because the elderberry plants that I ordered last year were bigger than the 8-12" as stated and were beautiful and healthy, so we want to plant 20 of them along my 120' fence in front of our farm market and enjoy/sell the berries. The fragrance of the bloom is like lilac! Every year I shove my face into the blooms and get a whiff of God's glory in nature! Pure heaven! Delicious!

I have the space in the back. The shrub grows 8 feet tall, and will make for good hedge. Elderberry jam seems interesting.

I grew up with elderberries in Germany and truly miss the flavor. It's the right time now to bring it back.

I want to be able to make my own cough syrups and tintures I love the idea I might be able to grow my own so I no longer have to order the berries from the herb shop. Debbie

serendipity . . . I have been purloining these wonderful berries for years, from the foothills of southern California. Now a Prescott resident . . .there are no elderberries, but the grow zone is hospitable . . so . . .voila!

elderberries are hard to find in the wild with so many people tearing them down as brush. We make the best jelly with elderberries and wanted our own stand to harvest. Thank you for having them!!!
Cheryl T on Apr 17, 2016
I am into herbal remedies, and there are no wild elderberries anywhere where I live. I can make a good cough syrup for the grandchildren without all the chemicals.
Rhonda B on Apr 7, 2016
We love making elderberry jelly and wine. I am interested in landscaping my backyard with natives that are wildlife-friendly and elderberries are the perfect item for that. I also understand that it is helpful to order different varieties to improve pollination and production.

Good for my zone and wanted good products; which I have always had through Miller. I'm hopeful that Stark will be just as good.

My wife wants to make elderberry jelly and it is a hassle to find available wild ones anymore.
NICHOLAS T on Mar 13, 2016
need a couple of bushes to hide neighbors, why not make wine too.
JIM B on Mar 12, 2016
We have wild elderberries, but I couldn't stand another summer of picking the tiny berries with big seeds. The birds can have them with my blessing.
Caron W on Mar 8, 2016
What we don't use for jelly or jam, will provide food for the local birds and beauty in the landscape.

I used to have elderberries at my old house and loved them so I hope to have them again.

How many pounds of berries per plant?
Kim E on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my experience, I've gotten around 3-4 lbs per plant (on average). It varies on the maturity of the plant, the health, and the approach to pruning. Yield increases as healthy plants mature. I've seen some folks say they get up to 12-15 lbs of elderberries per mature plant ??? that's a lot of elderberries!
Size of plants when purchased?
Jonathan L on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Our bare root elderberry plants have a shipping expectation of approximately 12" tall.
I have two varieties of elderberry that I purchased from Stark Bros in 2015. One is doing great and the other is nice and and tall - bot no flowers at all. Am I being impatient there are lots of flowers all over the other one?
Dave V on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased York and Nova, the Yorks have bloomed earlier than the Novas by 3 weeks. It took them 4 years to really get established and produce equal amounts of blossoms. The Novas seem to develope a little slower and later overall.

the plants i received were bare root and really didnt look like much. but i planted them when i was supposed to and gave them as much love as i could. We here in the northeast had a harsh winter . winds , snow, rain, some in the same day. days of 60 degrees followed by days of 25. My plants are healthy and doing well. Im more than pleased.

Elderberry plant collection
The plants I ordered arrived in good condition. They survived the winter and this spring 3 of the 4 are growing well. The 4th is tiny and will probably eventually do fine but my cat laid on it, chewed it and then dug it up shortly after it was originally planted so time will tell! I would do business with Stark Nursery again.

Stark elderberry plant collection in Ohio
I planted 2 elderberry plants last fall. They just took off after planting! They seemed to have a love for life. I would recommend Stark's elderberry collection to everyone. These Stark brothers really know what they are doing.

hardy plants
I live in an area where moose forage for anything remotely green and did not think my elderberries would come back this spring, but they came back with a vengeance! excellent plants.
on shipment they were packed well and full of moisture on arrival, planted, then rethought placement and transplanted successfully. highly recommend.

Wonderful Elderberry Plants
I am quite pleased with the elderberry plants and they are really growing! Can't wait to have berries! I did receive one plant that didn't put on any leaves and when I called the company I was sent a replacement immediately! Will definitely come back to Stark Bros when I have other plant needs.
