ELDERBERRY (Sambucus nigra subsp. canadensis)


2017 UPDATE: Have about a full acre of wild native Elderberry here on site. Massive quantities of cuttings available! Cuttings of any size readily and easily root for clones. Cuttings are taken from multiple trees for ideal cross-pollination, and usually come packed in ‘cocopeat’ (ideal rooting medium).

Elderberry is the source of the what is perhaps the most effective anti-flu substance known to man. As seen in “Sambucol” brand OTC anti-flu medicine. A simple ethanol extraction of the berries is about all it takes to make the stuff.

Domestic Orders: Cuttings are cut to about 10-12″, or ideal length for Priority Mail packaging.

Product Description

ALL cuttings orders will receive pieces from multiple trees. They tend to be the length of the parcel they ship in, or about 12″ long. Type of ‘wood’ and therefore thickness might depend on the season. Can ship year round. Cuttings are dipped in our in-house “Root Juice”, and ship packed in Coconut Coir (the best for cloning). Arrange them in a pot with this included material once they arrive. Keep reasonably moist and under shade until transplanting. Divide & transplant when you see new shoot growth. Transition into full sun as they mature.

The berries are edible after cooking and can be used to make jam, jelly, chutney and Pontack sauce. The berry extract is used to make the commercial product “Sambucol”, a renowned influenza treatment. This plant readily propagates from stem cuttings and root divisions. This plant generally requires separate specimens for pollination.

Plant Germplasm (definition): Any portion of genetic material that can be grown into a live plant. Examples include seeds, stem cuttings (via many methods including air layering), root cuttings, root divisions (multiplication via division), leaf cuttings, leaf fragments (in tissue culture), rooted nodes (vines), “eyes” (offshoots from potato tubers), cacti pieces, etc. The term germplasm can also be used to describe a collection of genetic resources for an organism such as as a seed collection or, for trees, a nursery. EXCLUSIVE: All live plants, bulbs and recalcitrant seeds are regularly inoculated with numerous strains of beneficial symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi & bacteria (listed below) essential for strong healthy plant roots. Generally this is one of the last aspects of horticultural science that gardeners learn about when it should be the first.
