Elderberry is a big bush, or a small tree, depending on your point of view, and how
tall you let it grow. Mine all still look like floppy bushes. I think
the flowers are beautiful, which more than makes up for the untamed look
of the whole plant.
are indifferent to the Elderberry
blooms, but the mockingbirds seem to lurk near the plant often enough to
make me think they're nibbling a berry or two.
