Since I had no idea what elderberries look like growing, I had read as much as I could about them before ordering. One thing that was in almost every article was something about the fragrant blossoms.
It is hard to describe how absolutely delightful the fragrance of these blossoms. Almost every plant has at least two big flower head type things like this one.
Before I ever get to the garden gate, I can smell these sweet blossoms. I sure hope they produce a few berries this year. I can also already see new shoots coming up from the ground. I’m thinking these would be great to put along a fence line. But, for now, we probably have more than enough elderberries.
