Elderberry is a native, sprawling, suckering shrub that can form large, naturalized colonies. The fruit is attractive to birds, and can be used for jam, jellies, pie fillings or wine. It is a host plant for a number of butterflies and moths, most notably the Cecropia moth, North America's largest moth. It tolerates a wide range of soils, but prefers moist, well-drained sites.
