STRONGLY ANTIVIRAL MEDICINAL BERRIES. WOW! Self-pollinating elderberry, so only one plant is necessary for fruit production. The berries are much larger than many of the American varieties and Marge is also self-pollinating so only one plant is necessary for fruit production. Very vigorous and fast grower.  Flowers form on last year’s woody growth, so fruit will usually form the second year after planting. Currently being trialed by commercial elderberry growers with excellent results so far! Upright, non-suckering growth makes it easier to grow. Cross between the American Sambucus canadensis and the European Sambucus nigra, with very large berries, high production and self-pollinating. Excellent new cultivar!
