Sambucus nigra caerulea

(previously Sambucus mexicana or Sambucus cerulea)

A many-branched shrub or small tree from 10-30' tall and 8-20' wide, Blue Elderberry gives delicious edible fruit and makes a choice selection for the native habitat garden. Common along stream banks and in open areas of forest.

Blue Elderberry can be trained up to a single trunk tree though it's much more common as a multi-stem suckering thicket.
