Sambucus canadensis6-12' x same. University of Missouri/Missouri State University, by PL Byers and AL Thomas. Selected from wild bushes in 1995, introduced in 2010.
A consistently high-yielding elderberry cultivar, popular in the Midwest. Some trials are showing it produces as much as Adams No. 1, if not more, and ripens a little bit later. Vigorous! Give it lots of room or whack it back. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)

Considered self-fertile but multiple plants will improve fruit set—it’s okay to mix species. Plant 4–6' apart. Best in rich soil but adaptable to a variety of soil types. In spring, while plant is still dormant, prune away any weak, broken or dead canes.
Note: Cooking elderberries is essential to breaking down toxic cyanide-inducing glycosides in the seeds. Not for fresh eating.
