Sambucus canadensis 'Adams'

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Adams Fruiting Elderberry. This is a new superior fruiting form of our native American elderberry, which is highly valued for its medicinal and nutritional properties, and is reported to be anti-viral as well as anti-bacterial. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C. This selection is a heavy fruiting form which must be planted with another cultivar for cross-pollination. It will produce a flower head of up to 12 inches across. They do best with uniform moisture and will also tolerate some shade and still produce a heavy crop. It is quite vigorous, so one needs to give it plenty of space as it will reach 6-10 ft. high, with an equal spread. As with all Elderberries, they are not meant to be eaten fresh, but must be properly prepared to produce their superior juices, jellies, syrups and wines.
