Where I grew up we had many wild Elderberry bushes growing in our neighborhood and used the berries to make pies and jam. I would like to plant my own Elderberry bushes in NY, but I can't seem to find a mail-order nursery that sells them. Do you have any suggestions? What species do I need to purchase to produce the dark (almost black) fruit?

Raintree Nursery http://www.raintreenursery.com... offers several named varieties of elderberry. "Johns" has dark purple to black berries and may be similar to what you remember.
