Why American Black Elderberry?
Famous in Europe and North Africa for a long time, black elderberries were once thought to ward off evil spirits and cure diseases. We don’t know about evil spirits, but in the U.S., black elderberries are recognized as a ‘superfruit” because of their multiple health benefits.
All parts of the elderberry are considered valuable healing plants in folk medicines. They help fight colds and flu, lower cholesterol, and reduce cancer risk.
Because of its multiple benefits, American Black Elderberry is sold in the form of powder, pill, juice, syrup, gummy, etc. The flowers are the mildest part of the plant and are prepared as tea to break dry fevers and stimulate perspiration.
Aside from medicine, Sambucus canadensis are used to make arrow shafts, combs, flute, dyes for basketry, and much more. Despite its many advantages, the plant is not palatable during all seasons and receives limited browsing in the spring as compared to late summer and fall.
Pollination: Self fruiting, however, larger yields can be expected with cross pollination of multiple varieties.
