Sambucus racesmosa ssp. pubens

Red Elderberry

Grows 6 to 12 feet with similar spread. Creamy white blooms in early spring provide early nectar/pollen for insects. Showy red fruit in midsummer is eaten by birds. North American variant of the circumboreal  S. racesmosa. Huge pinnate leaves give a tropical effect. Will tolerate less than ideal site conditions. Sun to light shade. Moist to dry soil.
