Sambucus canadensis 'York' is a North American native elderberry cultivated for its huge crops of large, tart berries. Elderberries are used as edible fruit, in herbal medicines, and to attract beneficial insects to the garden. White flowers bloom in clusters in late spring followed by berries in the fall. The largest of the elderberry varieties, reaching up to 8 feet tall by 6 feet wide. Self-fruiting but appreciates another variety close by to improve yield. More sun produces more berries.
