Elderberry Shrub

Elderberry, a deciduous, multi-stemmed, small tree, is a native species to the United States. The Elderberry shrub is a hardy tree that flourishes across almost all contiguous 48 states.

TN Nursery recommends this shrub to customers who want a species that is drought-tolerant, cold-tolerant, heat-tolerant, and agreeable. Elderberry produces edible fruits that some people harvest for personal use. However, many other gardeners leave the plump berries for the birds and wildlife to enjoy.

Besides "elderberry," the following are a few other common names that refer to this species:

  • American elder
  • American elderberry
  • Common elderberry
  • Elder tree

The Elderberry Shrub Is Super Easy to Grow

This species grows in nature with no human intervention. You see them along ditch banks, on the south- or west-facing edges of woods, along light or utility lines, or in open fields. These spots represent their preference for full sunshine or a partially sunny location.

When you plant your elderberry shrub, find a spot with the appropriate sunlight and recreate the woody material the species enjoys in the woods. Add a good handful of hardwood mulch, peat moss, compost, or leaf litter--it craves these woody materials. A young elderberry tree requires about one inch of water each week.

your elderberry tree will become relatively carefree after strengthening and growing a little. It will demand nothing of you except water during an extended drought.

Elderberry ShrubsRustic Good Looks

Elderberry shrubs are shrub-like and rounded in shape. They grow as high as twelve feet tall and might grow as wide.

Opposing, bright green compound leaves grow in clusters of seven to eleven leaflets. They are oval-shaped with a narrow tip, light to bright green, and up to six inches long. They have sharply serrated edges. In autumn, the leaves usually turn bright yellow to deep amber.

They blossom profusely in late spring or early summer--many quarter-inch cream-colored flowers that occur in clusters produce fat, round, purple to black berries.
