Golden Currant, Clove Current
A beautiful hardy deciduous shrub native to the Rocky Mountains. It has moderate growth to 5ft., but can be held at less with pruning. Light green leaves turn maroon in the fall. Bright yellow flowers in the spring are followed by red edible berries, great for attracting birds! It was first found and recorded by Meriwether Lewis in 1806 and remains one of the most notable natives in the west! It has many use; in group plantings and planters and is adaptable to most soils. It requires very little maintenance and very little water. A great addition to any landscape!
