Washington Hawthorn
Ranch Elderberry

Washington Hawthorn is an attractive ornamental shrub that is dense enough to plant as a privacy screen. It produces clusters of white blooms in late spring to early summer.

Washington Hawthorn's red berries last throughout winter, bringing squirrels and birds to your property. In the fall, its foliage turns beautiful orange, scarlet, or purple.

One of the most overlooked trees on the prairies. This tree is often used as rootstock, a wildlife attractor, or a boulevard hedge. Give this one a second look.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Please note: this plant is poisonous to dogs.

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.
