Sambucus racemosa (Red Elderberry)
Sambucus racemosa (Red Elderberry)
Our Price: $3.00

A fast growing multistemmed shrub to 2-3m in all directions. I consider this more of a wildlife/soil erosion plant more than a culinary fruit source though many folks give their recipes for this fruit all the time at Seedy Saturday events. Many winged creatures love its racemes of late spring flowers and more winged creatures (and wild crafters) love it for its bright red fruits that cling to purple stems. Bold green foliage.  Fast growing.  I seen it thriving in near boggy conditions to the edge of gravel driveways.  Carefree and I've never seen it bothered by pests/disease.
Symphoricarpos alba
Symphoricarpos alba (Snowberry)
Our Price: $3.00

Lovely deciduous subshrub to 2m.  Lobed blue green leaves.  Many small pink bell like flowers appear mid spring and are much loved by hummingbirds.  White berries have the size and constancy of mini marshmallows which are winter food for Varied Thrush.  Another native plant that grows everywhere on our property, but is rare or endangered in other parts of North America!  Can grow in massive colonies via runners.  Drought tolerant.  Young plants grow quickly, but become bushy and multistemmed at maturity.
Vaccinium ovalifolium
Vaccinium ovalifolium (Wild Blueberry)
Our Price: $3.00

Fairly large berries for a wild shrub that hasn't been selected nor bred for fruit size.  I've been looking for this species for years and voila there was this grove of beauties.  Largest shrub was over 2m in height over than in spread. Smallest bearing bush didn't reach my knee. Larger oval leaf compared to their red huckleberry kin (V. parvifolium), attractive red twigs and growing in the same area, one can plant both in a berry hedge. Had to slap my husbands hands to keep some for seed saving.
Vitis riparia (Frost Grape)
Vitis riparia (Frost Grape)
Our Price: $3.00

This North American grape is one of the hardiest species in the world surviving temperatures as low as minus 40C (-40F). The grapes are sweetly acidic and have a lovely flavor when allowed to fully ripen on the vine thus excellent for wine making and jellies. A stunning vine up to 5-7 m with variable leaf types (rounded or deeply lobed) displaying beautiful golden autumn colors. Highly valued by wildlife and perfect for naturalizing woodland areas or along fences and of course as root stock.
Amelanchier alnifolia
Amelanchier alnifolia (Saskatoon)
Our Price: $3.25

Looks greats in any landscape. Oval blue green leaves, open spike like clusters of ivory strap petal flowers in mid May followed by blueberry like fruits in mid-late summer. If you can beat the birds to the fruit, consider yourself lucky.
