Wildly nutritious fruit on fast-growing plants. Broad, flat clusters of tiny white flowers appear in spring, beautiful in bouquets or battered and fried, much like you might do with zucchini blossoms. The wonderfully fragrant blooms become hefty clusters of deep, dark-purple berries that are packed with super-antioxidants. Use the fruit in jelly, jam, pies and cobblers or for syrup and wine. Attracts pollinators like hummingbirds and bees. Cold-hardy. Ripens in early August. Pollinator required: Choose any other elderberry variety.
