The flower is different isn't it?

The ones you posted and the
ones I took photos of are do
not have the same shape.

I'll have to see what color
the berries are when they ripen.
I think there is another color
elderberry that is poisonous
too at the link I put in your
blog comments.

Need to read up on it more.

Thanks for the info!

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Flassie ~ I left a comment about Elderberry on the other post about Elderberry , guess I should have left it here.
Both types of Elderberry have toxins/poisons , as most herbs do. Only the flowers and berries are edible on the Common Elderberry , but you need to remove the seeds from it's berry.
