(Red Currant)

A vigorous, productive deciduous shrub, Ribes rubrum ‘Wilder’ red currant is notable for its pendent clusters of greenish-yellow flowers in early spring followed in summer by grape-like clusters of tart, sweet, shiny red fruits. Like many currants it is banned in some regions because it can be infected by white pine blister rust, a usually fatal disease of Pinus. The parent species is native from northern Europe to Manchuria. This hardy cultivar, ‘Wilder,’ was found in the U.S. around...

(Red-flowered Currant, Winter Currant)

Few western natives stand out in early spring as boldly as a wild currant in full flower. It is a woodland shrub found in Washington, Oregon and California—largely in the moist areas beneath the coniferous forests that cloak the coastal mountain ranges.

This upright shrub offers marvelous seasonal interest with maple-like foliage that is both delicate looking and durable. Drooping clusters of many small dusty rose to ruby-red blooms appear in early spring, usually before the leaves appear,...

(Red-flowered Currant)

A vigorous, deciduous shrub from the northwestern U.S., Ribes sanguineum has given risen to several showy cultivars, among them this smaller one, ‘King Edward VII,’ which covers itself with dangling clusters of flower buds that open to star-shaped red flowers in early spring as the leaves emerge. The leaves are lobed and textured and the plants makes a fountain-like crowd of branching upright stems.

For best growth and fruiting, plant ‘King Edward VII’ in full sun to partial shade on...

(Fuchsia-Flowered Gooseberry)

Currants make excellent subjects for the ornamental or culinary garden. Deciduous and evergreen shrubs from the temperate zones of the Northern Hemisphere and the uplands of South America, they are most commonly grown for their small, spherical, often translucent berries, which are usually edible. The several-seeded fruits are black, red, green, yellow, or purple. Many currants are well worth growing for their showy clusters of small, four- or five-lobed, pink, white, red, or yellow flowers, which...
