Unlike its edible kin, gooseberries and currants, the Alpine currant, a native of Europe, is grown mostly as a hedge or specimen plant for its size, shape, glossy leaves and tolerance of pruning. It is a medium-sized, hardy deciduous shrub that with age has many branching stems and takes a spreading shape. It is dioecious (plants are either male or female) and the female plants have greenish yellow flowers of very little ornamental value. The leaves are green to dark-green, slightly lobed, toothy,...
