This order is for 5 bare root chunks. Each root should, but may not always make a new plant. We’ve had great success propagating elder this way. The is the native elderberry sambucus canadensis, perfect for making syrup and other extractions!
Place the root in a pot or in the ground anytime of the year, about two inches deep. Elderberry can grow into a small tree and is best kept pruned as a small shrub, prune after picking the fruit in the fall. Typically it will take 2-3 years to produce fruit in a good location.
Bare root plants should be opened immediately and planted, or stored in moist sand in the refrigerator.
