Red Elderberry is an attractive, medium-sized deciduous shrub.

It produces clusters of white flowers in the spring and bright red berry-like drupes, which provide beautiful contrast against its coarse, textured green foliage.

Red Elder can be pruned as a small single or multi-stemmed tree.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Blue Treasure Haskap is a late season cultivar, ideal for cooler climates, and a favorite from Berries Unlimited. The berries are delectably sweet and ideal for fresh eating, but can also be made into jam, juice, and wine.

Blue Treasure is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Kawai is a great companion variety.
