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.
