American elderberry, sweet elderberry, and elder are some common names for this native deciduous shrub. The genus name may come from the Greek word sambuke, for a musical instrument that was once made of elder wood. For centuries elderberry has been used to heal the body, mind, and spirit through its gifts of medicines and charms. The species name, canadensis, denotes Canada or the Northeast, where this plant was first identified.
