Elderberries are popular for their unusual taste in pies, jellies, and jams. They are occasionally used in making wine. The plants are very hardy (usually in areas no colder than Zone 4 but some kinds in Zone 3), and because they flower in late June, the crop is seldom damaged by a late spring frost. They are attractive and easy to grow and are great in landscape plantings. Elderberries contain more phosphorus and potassium than any other temperate fruit crop. The fruits also are rich in vitamin C.
