I've been meaning to try more air layering but just haven't gotten around to doing it a lot yet. I did a little bit and it was very time consuming for me and I haven't given it another go yet.

Resounding YES! Hubby and I are building our house right now and stretching before bed especially is proving to be an essential practice. I'm curious about your routine? What are you stretching and/or rolling on? Would you care to share the deets? We don't have a foam roller at this time, but do wiggle around on the floor with two rubber balls placed between shoulders and along spines. I imagine we look kinda looks like bears scratching up on a tree, only horizontal. X)

That sounds to me like it's Sambucus racemosa: https://nativeplantspnw.com/red-elderberry-sambucus-racemosa/
Red elderberry is not edible, or at least, most sources consider it toxic. A few speak of native people having processed it but how, or whether it is palatable, I don't know. It is good for pollinators and birds though

Do you have any ideas how I could identify the species based on just a first year cutting with leaves? I read that the berries are different, but it could be several years before I get fruit.
The joys of gifts from strange places! I think I will change the subject on this thread, as I'm "definitely not sure" exactly what I'm dealing with - and have no idea whether information from my friend will be accurate.
