‘Wyldewood’ Elderberry

Sambucus canadensis 6-12' x same. University of Missouri/Missouri State University, by PL Byers and AL Thomas. Selected from wild bushes in 1995, introduced in 2010.

Additional Information

Elderberries

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.
