What's an herbal garden without an elderberry? If you want to grow the straight species common to much of Eastern North America, then this is the one for you. It has a large and sprawling habit but can be pruned to maintain its size. While ours here at the farm grow naturally by the creek/field edges, they can adapt to a range of site conditions and grow perfectly well in a cultivated garden.

From elderberry syrup to elderflower tempura, we enjoy the many uses of this native plant.
