The venation is quite prevalent thus I don't believe it is either of our northeastern natives American elder or eastern red elderberry (S. canadensis or S. racemosa) - I have been starting both of the natives from cuttings and they are just starting to leaf out so I'll check the newly emerged leaves to see if they have that prominent venation but I have my doubts. As the plants mature distinctive leaf features may appear leading toward a specific cultivar of S. canadensis or the close European relative, S. nigra.
