Elevate Your Landscape: Flourish with American Elderberry Seeds – Nurture Nature's Bounty!

The American elderberry (Sambucus canadensis) is a deciduous shrub that is native to North America.

Each spring the plant is covered with clusters of tiny white flowers that are followed by purplish-black fruit. Flowers and fruit have applications in alternative medicine.

You can plant elderberry if your garden is in ​zones 3 to 10. It is native to eastern North America. This elderberry is 10 to 15 feet tall and wide, growing into a rounded shape. Elderberry shrubs need full sun to partial sun. 30+Seeds per order.

Some American Native Wildflower seeds need to go through a cold winter to germinate. This plant is one of them. They do this so the seed won’t sprout in fall, only to have the seedling not make it through a cold winter.

I keep these seeds at 40F to simulate a cold winter(stratification) This raises the germination rate considerably. Thanks for looking!!
