Sambucus nigra “Samyl” is a new Danish variety of elderberry / svarthyll. It is very productive, the earliest elderberry I’ve grown (they are marginal here), hardy and it has large berries and large umbels of flowers…
I’ll be offering hardwood cuttings to members of Norwegian Seed Savers (Kvann) this winter (to be a member go to http://kvann.org and click on “Bli medlem”!
10 years ago, I wouldn’t have believed it was possible to harvest elderberries here, but with the new Danish cultivars which are both early, hardy and with large berries this album shows the result…The cultivars shown are Samyl and Samnor!
They are now drying above my wood stove..
