Ranch Elderberry. This is a new superior fruiting form of our native American elderberry, which is highly valued for its medicinal and nutritional values, 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 the cultivar 'Wyldewood' 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 of fruit. It is quite vigorous but will not get quite as large as its partner 'Wyldewood', reaching only 5-6 ft. high with an equal spread. AS with all Elderberries, it is not eaten as fresh fruit but when properly prepared it is  highly prized for its juice, jellies, syrup and wine.
