Why plant Ranch Elderberry?

Let's boost that immune system! Elderberries are a great source for a healthy snack and an excellent source to boost your immune system. Ranch Elderberry brings a heavy production of berries each year. The upright shape that Ranch takes makes harvesting the juicy berries quick and easy, allowing you to dig into your bounty sooner rather than later!

Elderberry is a fast-growing, medium-sized to large Accent usually found in moist soil. It grows all over the eastern U.S., from Minnesota to Maine and from Texas to Florida. A rich history of myth and legend surrounds Elderberries, dating back to pre-Christian days in Europe. A closely related species growing there was said to have connections to magic, fairies, evil demons, and death. It makes perfect sense, then, that in the Harry Potter series, the most powerful magic wand that ever existed (last owned by Dumbledore) was—what else?—an Elder wand!

How to use Ranch Elderberry in the landscape?

Big things come in small packages, especially with the Ranch Elderberry! Smaller and more compact than most other elderberry varieties, Ranch makes harvesting its large yields easy and hassle-free; no need to break out the ladder! To keep the berries from being picked clean before you can harvest, netting the bush so birds and other wildlife cannot reach the berries is an option.

How To Plant Ranch Elderberry

Ranch Elderberry is happiest in rich, fertile soil that never dries out. It prefers all-day sun, but will do fine with just a few hours of direct sun. You’ll want to plant in multiples for heaviest fruiting—cross-pollination will allow each plant to bear more fruit. Over time, Ranch Elderberry will send up suckers around the parent plants; be sure to give them room to spread. Little pruning will be necessary, but if you happen to prune late in the season, don’t destroy the trimmings—native bees may overwinter inside the pithy stems of Elderberry. They emerge in the spring.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
