Also note that when ordering any bare root berry stock, please do NOT add any other store items to your order, such as beeswax candles etc. Your plant order needs to be only plants or I will cancel your order.
It's also helpful when ordering to put in the notes, where you would like to pick up your order. It can be changed but that gives us an idea. Just write it in notes, there is no option to click for where to pick up.
When you pick up your order, they will be wrapped in a plastic bag and should be kept moist and planted within 24 hours or at least healed in.
All varieties are chosen to do well in Utah, Idaho etc. Down to Zone four.
Why four different choices? We love having a variety. Pick at least two different ones, as they need a different type to pollinate but it's splitting hairs on which ones. Pick two, enjoy and when you want to ad more, get different varieties. If I was buying four. I'd get one of each.
Bare root elderberry plants from one of our favorite vineyards! These elderberries are great plants. They have a great root structure and are very productive if planted well. And there are SO MANY benefits to having your own fresh elderberries! Here’s a bit of a bio on each variety.
ADAMS ELDERBERRY - Carefree beauty with edible appeal. Vigorous plants have glossy green foliage and in May they develop large white flower-heads. If not harvested first for fritters, tea, or wine, elderflowers develop into exceptional, large fruit clusters in the summer. Fruit contains a high amount of vitamin C and has better, consistent quality than wild elderberries. Cold-hardy. Ripens in August. Best pollinator: any other elderberry variety.
JOHNS ELDERBERRY - Larger berries on more vigorous plants. Fruit ripens about two weeks later than Adams. Carefree plants require little to no spraying. Green foliage has an appealing gloss to add landscape interest to this bush. Giant clusters of white flowers bloom in spring, becoming soft, nearly black berries in late summer. Both the elderflowers and the ripe elderberries are edible. Cold-hardy. Ripens in mid-August. Best pollinator: any other elderberry variety.
NOVA ELDERBERRY - An easy-care addition to the edible landscape. Wide clusters of creamy white flowers appear in spring, making wonderful components for bouquets or for dipping in batter and making fritters. If left on the bush, the flowers develop into bountiful bunches of tender, deep purple berries used in jams, jellies, pies, and wines. Being native to North America, these fast-growing bushes also appeal to wildlife, like bees and hummingbirds, as a food source. Cold-hardy. Ripens in early August. Best pollinator: any other elderberry variety.
YORK ELDERBERRY - Bring edible beauty to your landscape. In spring, these plants feature lovely white blooms, and in summer, they produce a bounty of soft, dark purple berries that are good for cooking or making delicious jams, jellies and wines rich in vitamin C. Berries ripen later than counterpart: Nova. Easy-to-grow plants tolerate dry or moist soils once established. Fruit is not affected by growing in partial shade. Regular summer watering is necessary for consistent fruit quality. Shrubs also make great wildlife attractants. Cold hardy. Ripens in August. Best pollinator: any other elderberry variety.
