Red Elderberry

Sambucus racemosa

Native Pollinator

Creamy white clusters of small flowers bloom from early spring to mid-summer. Birds and small mammals love the bright red berries that follow. This shrub is a good source of nesting materials for native bees. It has a broad arching shape and responds well to pruning. The dense roots make it a great plant for stabilizing slopes, and it would be a showy addition to a wildlife garden, large rain garden or riparian site.
