Elderberry bushAmerican elderberry (Sambucus canadensis) is one of the easiest and most versatile shrubs used for edible landscaping. This deciduous, native perennial has fragrant flowers and dark purple berries that are high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. Often referred to as “nature’s medicine chest,” both its flowers and berries can be used in culinary & herbal preparations.
