Added a Whitney CrabApple to the North East Corner.
Small, sweet, edible crab apples. Pink-and-white blossoms in spring and loads of red, golf-ball-size crab apples in late August to early September. Perfect for canning, preserving, pickling and spiced apples. Flesh is sweet, juicy and slightly yellow.
Elderberry - (Sambucus canadensis)
Added a row of 25 Elderberry buses from MDC.
Found throughout the state in open woods, fence rows, roadsides and along borders of streams and ponds. The flowers are large, showy, flat-topped white clusters that appear in late May to June. The dark-purple berries are edible and make an excellent jelly. Many species of birds and mammals eat the fruit, and deer browse the leaves and branches. Will tolerate both wet and dry sites.
