I'm pretty sure that European and American elderberries are now considered to be the same species, with the American now listed as a subspecies of the European....Sambucus nigra ssp. canadensis.

If they don't end up with male and female flowers at the same time you should be able to collect and dry the pollen and use it when called for.  BTW, I'm loving your adventuresomeness Jackie!

Those are some nice looking socks Dez! :)
The thanks go both ways.  I got a pair for myself based on your recommendation and love them.  Hang in there....spring will be here before you know it.
Cameron, did you contact them and ask if they can be consumed by humans?  I'm just super curious what they would say.

Excellent news Patrick!  I got those accessions as well and have some local friends interested as well.  It'll be fun to see how this all plays out.  Thank you so much for identifying this target!

Hi Jackie.  Any plant that is a strong self pollinator should be ok to collect from even a single plant.  So, for example, tomatoes, peas and beans are worth saving.  While I think they'd all be better off as open pollinated landraces like Joseph is and has created, the varieties of tomatoes, peas and beans we mostly grow will be ok.  It also helps that those three are also super easy to save seeds from.
