    Sambucus canadensis survives up to 8,000 feet. One resource I checked said 10,000. It does need moisture to do well. Red elderberry, Sambucus racemosa, might grow at higher elevations but all parts of the plant are toxic. Here is a good resource for you: http://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/yard-garden/trees-and-shrubs-for-mountain-areas-7-423/
