The Sambucus racemosa, also known as the European Red Elderberry or Red Elderberry, is a deciduous shrub commonly found in riparian environments, woodlands, and other moist areas. With its bright red or sometimes purple drupe fruit, the Red Elderberry is a popular favorite among birds who help distribute the seeds. The fruit, which can be eaten raw or cooked, has a bitter flavor but is quite nutritious, containing significant amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. The fruit can also be dried prior to use, which will remove some of its rank taste. The flowers of the Red Elderberry have been used in the treatment of measles, and the root can be made into a tea-like beverage. The bark and leaves, on the other hand, have been used as a diuretic and purgative. In addition to its edible and medicinal uses, the Red Elderberry stem is easily hollowed and can be used to make a whistle. With its fragrant flowers and nutritious fruit, the Sambucus racemosa is a versatile and valuable shrub.
