Red-berried Elder (#sambucusracemosa ) is leafing out, with flowers coming close behind!!

For those elderberry fans out there, it is notable that Sambucus canadensis var. nigra (more popular for edible/medicinal purposes) does not flower until much later in the season. The flowers of racemosa are raceme shape, whereas canadensis is unmbel shape.

Both elderberry varieties are native shrubs that are beautiful additions to the residential landscape!
