Elderberries

​Elderberries do well in our area.  Elderberries produce more fruit when 2 or more varieties are used to cross-pollinate each other.  They prefer fertile, moist, well-drained soil.  Elderberries can be pruned to the ground or left as a bush.  They can produce fruit either way.  Varieties listed by growth height.
