I notice that the dried elderberries I buy for tea are Sambucus nigra imported from Europe. Elderberry tea seems useful for colds and respiratory infections.

Sorry for the confusion. In the presentation the guys was saying that
90% of the juice, syrup, tinctures& such sold in the US are all being
imported from europe. Not sure what is planted over there. Perhaps
that means that products are primarily sambucus nigra but he didn't go
into that.
