For some late spring and early summer aroma, this wonderful smelling American Elderberry, Sambucus canadensis is nice to have nearby.

This shrub, or small tree will grow between 10 & 15 feet tall. It begins to bloom creamy-white tiny flowers held on large, flat heads in May and you can smell it wafting in the distance. The berries come later in the summer and make delicious jellies and pies; wine too, which I haven't tried yet! It's also known for its medicinal use as a treatment for bronchial infections, coughs and colds, as well as other beneficial uses.

It likes sun to partial shade.
