Plantain is native to parts of Asia and Europe but is now grown all over the world.
The Elder plant (Sambucus nigra) which produces the Elderflower is part of the Genus group Sambucus. Elderflower is native to Africa along with parts of Asia and Europe. Although there are many varieties of the Elderflower the most common to be used grows from the Sambucus Nigra “The Elder Tree” or “European Elder”
