A newer commercial variety from Denmark with big clusters of black fruits that are especially high in antioxidants. Plants bear on two year old wood. Samdal Elderberry will send up many new canes from the base each year, so in order to keep the plant more manageable, commercial growers will prune out the second year canes after the crop has finished producing. Grows to about 5-7 ft. Care needs to be taken in harvesting, as elderberries can be brittle and roots resent disturbance. Zone 3-7.
