Elderberry - Sambucus nigra var. canadensis
A great plant for shrub borders that have half-day sun. The small flowers mass together in 6-12 inch wide flat-topped cymes in June. The purple-black fruit from August to September is relished by birds and humans. If the plant gets too large for an area, it may be cut to the ground in March and will still flower the same year.
