Sambucus callicarpa

Pacific Red Coast Elder, Coast Red Elderberry, Red Elderberry

Popular in southern United States temperate and subtropical regions, vigorous growing Elders also thrive in rich moist soil in the North. They are prized for their flat clusters of small white flowers and masses of tiny colorful fruits -- black, yellow, blue or red -- which attract birds. Some of their fruit is poisonous. Their coarse leaves have serrated edges. Use in larger plantings and for naturalizing in wild gardens. Tolerate most soils, including clay. Cut back in March close to last year's growth to encourage larger flowers. Fast re-growth.
