Native Red-Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum)
Native Red-Flowering Currant has been planted in gardens all over the world since its 1793 discovery in the Puget Sound region by Archibald Menzies. Best known for its fragrant clusters of red flowers emerging early in spring, Red-Flowering Currant is a versatile and fast growing deciduous shrub that reaches 5-8ft tall and can tolerate full sun to part shade. Although somewhat tolerant to drought, Red-Flowering Currant thrives best with occasional fertilizing and deep watering.
Plants come in 1 gallon pots and are 2-3ft tall.
