Elderberry, or Sambucus canadensis, is a versatile native Florida plant, valued for both its ornamental appeal and practical uses. This easy-to-grow, deciduous shrub flourishes in various soils, especially moist, well-drained ones, and is naturally found in North American environments like wetlands and woodlands. It grows quickly to 5-12 feet, forming a rounded shape with compound leaves.

From late spring to early summer, it produces fragrant clusters of white or creamy flowers, attracting pollinators like butterflies and bees. These give way to edible berries, ripe by late summer, popular in jams, jellies, and wines. Medicinally, the flowers and cooked berries are used for their health benefits, including immune support and inflammation reduction.

Elderberry is low maintenance, thriving in full sun to partial shade and requiring regular pruning for shape and fruiting. It's pest and disease-resistant, making it a hassle-free choice for Florida gardens. For gardeners, Elderberry offers aesthetic beauty, ecological support, and practical benefits, making it an ideal plant for both novices and experts.

    Excellent growth!

    Here is my elderberry bush after about 10 months! It’s a little over 4 feet tall and has a nice little extra sucker growing about a foot away. It makes a nice understory component to our food forest. I am very pleased! 😀
