Hi Jim;

Did you plant the Elderberries, or are they wild ?
That's good news.
I'm finding them under telephone wires, so they are probably bird distributed.

Up north in zone 4, I have Nova, York (both Canadensis) and Samdal (Nigra) all planted last April.
I'm taking a lot of notes and photos. Maybe this summer I'll show them on NAFEX.

      Some time ago I asked for suggestions of fruit that would grow in shade 
  and didn't get any answers that I could use.  Since then I've been 
  experimenting and learned that Sambucus canadensis does very well in shade. 
  It produces more in open sunlight but isn't a slouch in the shade either. 
  Most of mine are about 10' north of a line of maple trees  and do get peeks 
  of sunlight depending upon how the maple leaves blow in the wind.  A few of 
  my elderberry bushes are north of (under) White Pine and Spruce and do get 
  just a bit of direct sunlight about an hour before sunset.  All are quite
