|Tree in flower|
Sambucus peruviana, commonly called Sauco or Rayan is a medium-sized, spreading tree or shrub in the genus Sambucus that is distributed in the Andean mountain ranges from Costa Rica and Panama to Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru, and occasionally as far south as Argentina. It is one of the few elderberries that can be eaten out of hand, and its primary use is as a fruit for human consumption. Like common elderberries the fruits can also be made into syrups and wines, and the flowers can be made into fritters.
