Sambuca Nigra is the one you want - the one with the black berries. Accept no substitute. I don't think we have any other Elders growing wild in England.

I made elderberry icecream last year (needed sugar of course) as there were some unclaimed berries in Maggie's garden belonging to next door's tree. I don't like to let free food escape if I can help it!
