Elderberry, Samdal & Samyl: Sambucas Nigra, Perennial: We chose these two varieties due to their positive ability to cross pollinate with one another. You need TWO elderberry varieties to glean fruit. Elderberries have been renowned in New England for centuries for their immune boosting properties. The plant loves nitrogen rich sites, but can grow almost anywhere that there is light. An ancient healer, and a delicious contribution to your garden! They should produce fruit by next season. Transplant 3’-6’ apart.
