Product Description

Sambucus canadensis:  8-10’ high x 8-10’ wide / full sun to 3/4 shade / zone 3

This is a very easy-to-grow and versatile native berry bush.  We use the flowers to make tea or a nice summer drink similar to lemonade, or batter and fry them to make delicious fritters.  The berries are traditionally used in pies and jams.  We use a steam-juicer to extract the juice, and then we ferment it into a delicious wine.  It does well in wet soils, and can tolerate quite a shady spot in the garden.
