Ranch:
Ranch tends to be more compact and upright. Shorter plants make for easier harvesting, and this plant might be good fit for a “You Pick” operation. Tolerates marginal or less fertile soilshttp://normsfarms.co...berry-cuttings/

'Haschberg
Also described as German but mostly described as the European elderberry.
Haschberg is a variety of black European elder, especially popular in commercial orchards in Austria and Germany. It produces abundant and large clusters of dark purple berries, and grows to about 8 feet tall.
European black elderberries are the most sought-after and productive elder species because they have been selected for heavy yields and tolerance of temperatures well below 0°F. If you buy elderberries or elderberry tincture in the store, you are most likely looking at a variety of European black elder, Sambucus nigra. This species is partly self-fertile, so doesn't require cross pollination, but the yields will be heavier with a second variety planted near by.

Had some pest problems on these cuttings but got this from a local Gardner
Cut back the damaged and letting re growIMG_4679.JPG

The mother was out all winter. Hard to see but it's sending new growth up from the soil by the base of the stem.

Goldbeere
The only golden-berried elderberry, 'Goldbeere' was developed by German growers, a group that doesn't mess around when it comes to plant breeding. Shrub is more upright than other European cultivars and very productive. Since this is a nigra selection, you need to process the berries to make them edible, either by cooking or wine-making. Fabulous with the native Scuppernong grape in jams or jellies. And if you're looking for golden berries for flower arrangements in mid-summer, these branches are unsurpassed in mixed bouquets
(At this time I may not have a live plant as I am waiting till spring to see if last years plant survives the winter )

Good to see you man.

My first year cuttings did not like the container they were in. They did not grow too well. They will get ground and raised beds this year so they should do better.

It will be interesting with the seeds to see what type of plant grows for them. One week into the cold soak

Time and space cut the cold soak about 1/2 but still in the parameters of the cold soak time being a benefit in germination

I just found a huge elderberry tree in my sisters back yard, just in time to see this post. I'm going out today to check out the possibility of winter cuttings to transplant to my place for a collection of my own. I'll take pics later on when the berries come out again.

Thanks once again to the watchful eyes and careful posts of the members here.

 

added note: this tree is well over 20 years old, and 30 feet high. It grows a huge amount of elderberries and the birds eat most of them because there is no way of getting to most of them. I don't know much about this plant, but I am familiar with the syrup. I am learning more about the plant as we speak.

Perfect time to take cuttings
See IF you can find some young wood or 1-2 year old wood.
Make a clean cutting and use rooting hormone and stick into dirt / compost / potting mix and you should bee good
