OVERVIEW

 

European elder is a plant native to Europe, Northern Africa, and Western-and Central Asia. Its flowers and berries have a long history of use in traditional European medicine. Elder berries have also been used for making preserves, wines, winter cordials, and for adding flavor and color to other wines.

The branches and leaves are poisonous. The small stem which is sometimes left on the berry is safe.
