Largest Fruit of Any Elderberry

The York Elderberry is a hardy, ornamental shrub that produces edible fruit. It’s suitable as a specimen plant in your yard and would also make a spectacular hedge.

Elderberry shrubs can grow to 12 feet tall with an equal spread and lovely rounded appearance. Their bright red foliage and dense form make them a lovely addition to any yard…but wait until you see what summer brings!

In June your Elderberry will explode in huge clusters of tiny five petaled, white flowers. The tall yellow stamens extend significantly, giving the floral clusters an almost sparkly appearance in the sunlight. It’s as if fairy dust had been sprinkled over their pristine petals.

The Elderberry flowers will later give way to low calorie, highly nutritional fruit that has been prized for generations.

Your York Elderberry produces the largest fruit size and quantity of any of the Elderberries.

Elderberries are high in Vitamin C and used in many dishes including preserves, wine and pies. They are also sometimes used for medicinal purposes. In fact, many parts of the Elderberry are edible, and it has been written about extensively in folklore.

The York Elderberry will provide you with years of beauty and bounty, and requires little care from you. Its hardy and adaptable nature, coupled with its lovely flowers and delicious fruit, make it the perfect plant for your landscape.
