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.

The Madawaska Raspberry is a productive, early-fruiting variety with dark red berries that are juicy with a medium sweet flavor. They are very winter-hardy with great disease resistance. The berries are great for fresh eating and for baking or preserves.

The Madawaska Raspberry is a primocane variety. Prune stalks down each winter or early spring to get higher fruit yields and easier harvesting.
