Sambucus canadensis (nigra) - Elderberry, American Elder (Kir Royale). Elderberry is covered with large umbels of clustered white flowers from June to July, followed by a profusion of dark purple berry clusters in late summer. The fruit is prized by birds and makers of wine and jellies, alike.
Feather-like compound leaves grace this shrub, and provide outstanding cover and nesting sites for songbirds. It is also a host plant for numerous species of small moths, another reason nesting birds love this shrub.
Native to eastern North America, Elderberry is at home on streambanks or ponds, and is often seen along rural roadsides. While it prefers moist areas, it is quite tolerant of a wide range of soils in full to partial sun.
Typically growing up to 10 feet tall, it can be pruned to control spreading.
Elderberry flowers are self-fertile and only one plant is needed for bountiful fruiting.
One of the best ways to use elderberries is to make them into a syrup or cordial, to make delicious fruity drinks and cocktails (such as this Elderberry Kir Royale). You can also leave the berries to infuse their flavor into spirits. Elderberry gin is particularly tasty.
