Large white flower-heads; if not harvested first for fritters, tea, or wine, elderflowers develop into exceptional, large fruit clusters in the summer. Fruit contains a high amount of vitamin C. Better, consistent quality than wild elderberries. Cold-hardy. Ripens in August. Best pollinator: any other elderberry variety.
