‘Wyldewood’ Elderberry is an excellent choice for a yard, border, or garden. ‘Wyldewood’ grows quickly and will create essential wildlife habitat for birds, bees, and butterflies that are attracted to the flowers and berries. Green lance-shaped foliage surrounds the huge 12-inch white petaled flower heads that bloom with a lemony scent from June to July. By August clusters of purple-black fruits appear. High in vitamin C, they can be used to make jams, jellies, and wine. Or leave on the plant and watch the birds enjoy them. For best fruiting, it is recommended to plant another Elderberry cultivar nearby for pollination – a different cultivar will help with fruit production. Elderberries are resilient native plants, not fussy about soil type, and extremely cold hardy. Plant in a sunny or dappled shade location. It requires moderate water. Plants can be cut back to the ground in early spring to encourage more fruiting on the new growth. The leaves and stems are poisonous to dogs and cats.
