Product Description

Johns elderberry - Feed the wildlife, birds and yourself with nutrient-rich fruits. Elderberries yield fruits that are highly nutritious. They are an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants for humans. Wildlife also enjoy the fruits. Research has shown that the berries from the elderberry can strengthen the immune system to fight viruses. The multi-stemmed shrubs, 8 feet tall and 3 feet wide have landscape interest as well. Large creamy white flowers attract butterflies and other nectar loving birds. Plants produce clusters of black fruit that drape each branch. Fall color is outstanding, yellow to red-orange foliage that sparkles the landscape. Johns is a true native plant of North America. The plant will produce 30 pounds of berries every year; it is the highest yielding variety. The flavor of the berries is sweet with a hint of dry tangy flavor which elderberries are known for. Plants will adapt to any soil type and will product fruits the second year after planting. Zones 3-8 A hardy, native shrub with an upright, suckering growth habit. Selected for its fruit production. White flowers in mid summer and dark blue to black fruit in late summer. The berries can be used to make jelly, jam, pie, juice or wine. Great for attracting birds such as Robins and Cedar Waxwings.
