Questions & Answers

I grew up in Pennsylvania and loved the Elderberry jam and pies that my mother used to make for us. I have been trying to find some Elderberries so that I can end my cravings for my childhood specialities. I came across this plant as I was searching for a tree and could not believe what I was seeing. Can you tell me if this will grow in central Mississippi and if so, is it too late to order it, plant it and still have it thrive and bear fruit?
Asked by: Mama49
There is male and female plant. To bear fruit you need both plants.

Is it leafless in winter?

Asked by: vsb
yes.I cut it back in the fall so it doesn't get leggy and I have it in a large pot. I use potting soil with fertilizer.

Is this plant a self pollinator?

Asked by: Ed
Yes, but produces even more fruit when two different species are within so many miles of each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shrub This shrub came in with excellent shipping container. We opened the box and the shrubs were in excellent condition in a plastic container. WE took the plant outside added some water dug a hole and planted it. They were very healthy and are doing well in the garden. We are waiting to view the shrubs in the near future. I would buy from this nursery again without worrying about a great plant..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arrived looking healthy. Arrived April 21st before flowering. Leans a bit to one side, and if I'd picked it out at a nursery myself would have chosen one more symmetrical, but otherwise quite healthy looking. Came leafed out fairly well with no bug chews or rot, no bad odors. No mildew. Definitely not dormant. It was sent potted in dry soil in a gallon container. No more than 1/4 cup of loose soil had spilled into packing box. Not bad for this size container. Brand new leafs are bright green and get darker with age. Stems also start out green. The trunk and lowest branches are brown. I took pics the day it arrived. I think it will be a good size for closer to the house as ad states it will grow to about 8 ft. The leaves are long and thin so should decompose readily after the fall. Should make a nice addition to my berry garden. I think these are expensive but perhaps shipping is factored in to price.

One was just fine, the second one was sideways in the shipping box ,half the dirt was missing & the poor thing was really mangled. I trimmed the broken branches which made it smaller than the first one & got it in the ground immediately so maybe it'll recover from it's abuse. I think someone at some point needs some training about how to handle live plants. When the box has arrows that say "this side up" it needs to be kept that way. Needless to say I was really upset at how this plant was handled.

As good as walking into a nursery! Placed a large order; 13 plants. Packaging is perfect, all in excellent condition. With online order, I don't have to choose from limited selection in-store. I get what I want and extraordinary quality. Wish I'd known about Home Depot online before. I ordered from other sites and got dead plants-Never again!

On may 2nd I wrote a review about the condition of one of the plants I ordered. This had nothing to do with the plants themselves as they're beautiful (at least now). MY complaint was against the handling of the one plant by the delivery company. I waited to see if it could be saved & it's now doing fine. It's smaller because of the trimming I did but by getting it in the ground immediately, & giving it a little shade for a time & I think it will catch up with the one that was undamaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cool looking shrub like this plant a lot. I had it shipped and was really curious to see what kind of shape it would be in when it arrived. To be honest it wasn't looking good. The soil was still a little damp but the plant was fairly wilted (but intact). I took a chance and planted it anyway. After getting it in the soil and giving it some water, it perked right back up. This is a really unique looking shrub. I haven't seen many like it. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the fall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful addition to any yard I love these plants. This is my second black lace elderberry. They grow quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEALTHY PLANT I received my Black Lace Color Choice Sambucus and was pleasantly surprised. It is so healthy! Nice size plant for the pot size, bursting with buds and ready to bloom. I have planted it in my yard and cannot wait to see the opened blooms. I would definitely purchase again. Although there was no plant information/name with the plant, it was easy to find them on line and get all of the information.
