Artist's Description

Closeup of Elderflowers from Sambucus nigra

Individal flowers are approx 5mm while the flower corymbs are approx 20 cms.

The Elder is kin to the Honeysuckle and has been woven through many lands folklore. It has long been noted for its healing properties and was mentioned in the oldest of British Pharmacopoeia’s. To physicians and Wise Women of Old, it was considered the medicine chest of the country.

Most parts of the Elder are still used today in drinks, cooking, healing poultices, washes, infusions and ointments. One of my favourites is Elderflower cordial. :)
