American Elm vs Ranch Elderberry

American Elm
Ranch Elderberry

American Elm is fast growing, tall tree with a recognizable and pleasing shape.

It's well suited for urban environments because of its non-invasive roots and ability to grow on harsh sites (quite salt tolerant). American Elm develops a wide, dense canopy that provides shade for many city streets around North America.

Ranch Elderberry is a vigorous and high yielding Black Elderberry cultivar. It ripens earlier than other varieties, and is smaller and more compact making berry harvest easier. The berries are well suited for baked goods, jams, jellies, and syrups. They are high in vitamin C and reported to be beneficial for the immune system. Planting them near other varieties for cross pollination and in full sun will result in higher yields.

Warning: the seeds, stems, leaves, roots, and uncooked berries of the Ranch Elderberry are toxic to humans when eaten in quantity. You should cook the berries to make them safe for human consumption.
