Wild Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis) is a native shrub that bursts with clusters of white flowers in summer, followed by dark berries. These berries are a favorite among wildlife and are often used in jams and wines. Its compound leaves add texture to gardens, and its adaptability makes it a must-have for native plant enthusiasts. The Wild Elderberry is not just a plant; it’s a celebration of nature’s bounty.
