Adams Elderberry Plant Information
Elderberries, once established, will grow from being trimmed down to two feet up to eight foot in a single season. Elderberry plants have a glossy green foliage and white flower heads that appear in late May or early June. Both the elder-flowers and the ripe elderberries are edible. The flower heads can be used for a tea, wine, or making fritters and pancakes. This variety grows large fruit clusters in the summer that ripens in August. The fruit is high in vitamin C and there are many articles online about the medicinal values of elderberry. The berries can be used for pies, jams, wines, and sauces.
These plants are hardy in zones 4-8 and at maturity will grow to 6-10’ tall x 6-8’ wide. They like well drained soil, full sun, and need a pollinator. Good cross pollinators include Johns, Nova, and York Elderberry Plants.
Adams Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis)
Elderberry Fruit usually ripens in August. My Adams elderberry has been my second best producing plant. I harvested about 1/3 of my fruit from this plant. I have found that Adams and Nova have larger fruit than the Johns and American Elderberries.

I make elderberry syrup every year and take it as a preventative to getting colds and if I do get a cold, it seems to help me get over it quicker. Here is the recipe I use when Making Elderberry Syrup. This year I used a mix of berries from Adams, Johns, Nova, and American elderberries.
