Garden patio design ideas review I actually have started the usage of commonplace elderberry (Sambucus nigra ssp canadensis) in my landscapes to make stronger their natural world value. I got rid of large quantities of berry-producing invasive plants, like autumn olive, multiflora rose & Japanese honeysuckle, and wanted to replace them with food-producing vegetation to stay the birds & insects satisfied. By making a combined planting of elderberries, with a number of different native species, like dogwoods (Cornus spp), hollies (Ilex spp) & viburnums (Viburnum spp), I can stay natural world provided with berries from August to December. Common elderberry is a extremely adaptable shrub from the easterrn U.
S. , with berries galore for flora and fauna & people alike.
