Hardwood stem cuttings from our York elderberry plants.
Compared with the other varieties we grow, York flowers after Ranch and about the same time as Nova and Bob Gordon. Its berries ripen mid-season along with Nova and Bob Gordon. Berries are a nice size -- about 3/8" diameter.
York will bear best if planted with a second variety that flowers about the same time. Hardy to Zone 3.
Our mature bushes are 6-10 feet tall and about 6 feet wide. This is a little taller compared with most Sambucus canadensis varieties. We use a 3-step stool to reach berries at the top of the tallest bushes.
York was first released in 1964 by the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station.
Cuttings have been treated with certified organic dormant oil to smother any overwintering leaf mites, a common pest of elder plants.
