Elderberry, Sambucus canadensis, is self-fertile but the amount of fruit increases with a second cultivar nearby. Nearby means within 50 feet and the closer, the better. It isn’t male and female that you need, like holly, but plants from different growers. They will have slightly different genetics. Some Viburnums also need a second cultivar of the same species for optimal fruit set. If you buy one locally and get a second of the same species from a native plant nursery near you, you’ll be all set.
