Description

New Product!

A new variety that’s big on yield. Huge flower heads are a full 2” wider than existing varieties, producing foot-wide pompoms of wonderful, lemony blooms in June. Blessedly forgiving of poor soils, and extremely cold-hardy — even grows well in partial shade. Generous harvests of small, nearly-black, sweet drupes make delicious jams, jellies and wine, and are a great source of vitamin C. Some claim elderberries also have anti-viral properties. Allow fruit to ripen on the bush, then snip the whole cyme, strip the berries into a bowl and keep refrigerated. Ripens in August. Deer-resistant. Best pollinators: Ranch or Bob Gordon.

Your notice on this wylde Wood elderberry plant doesn???t just say ???out of stock???, it says ???out of stock for 82001???. It makes me think that you are rationing plants to my location and someone local got here first. Is that basically correct?

Please recommend similar size elderberry for cross pollination of wyldewood eldertberry. Deer resistant-what else might eat this? Thanks.
jimbob on Feb 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. The variety that would mature similar to the Wyldewood elderberry would be the Ranch elderberry maturing 5-6 feet. As far as other animals that would feast off your harvest would likely include squirrels, birds and any other wildlife unless you net your tree with a bird net but that is not 100% fool proof. Unfortunately it is very hard to detour wildlife.
What is the Latin name for this elderberry?
Scott on Feb 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Sambucus canadensis is the genus and species.

Hello! I heard that the Wyldewood elderberry is self-fertile, is that true? I do understand that a cross pollinator is best for good production but I have limited yard space so was wondering if I would get any fruit if I only kept one plant. Thanks!
Kay S on Apr 2, 2020
What is the size of this plant when shipped, potted or bare root?
Bob L on Mar 27, 2020
I already have ordered the York and Johns elderberry bushes. Are these suitable as pollinators for the Wylewood? You only mention the Bob Gordon.
Antigone on Mar 25, 2020
I'm surprised seeing 'well-drained' for soil conditions! All our 'native' Elderberries are growing in 'wet' areas--some even flooded during the Spring! My backyard is quite 'wet' in the Spring and I thought they might do well there?
