Wish everything I planted did as well as this.

That's my neighbor's ugly shed in the background.

You have the Canadian elderberry which can sucker as I've been told. I grow the red berry, Sambucus racemosa which blooms in April/May and has berries in June. Both of these are really great for birds. Everyone should have some of these, don't you think?
