Europe, temperate Asia, and North America are all home to the red elderberry. Red Elderberry may reach a height of 3-9 feet and is typically tree-like in our area. The opposing leaves are pinnately split into 5-7 leaflets. Leaflets are lance-shaped, toothed on the edges, and frequently hairy beneath the surface. In pyramidal clusters, little white to creamy flowers bloom. Berries are often brilliant red, but can also be purplish-black, yellow, or white. In forest gardens, red elderberry is very beautiful.
