Our plant of the week is the Golden Currant!

Golden Currant (Ribes aureum) was first recorded by Meriwether Lewis in what is now Washington state in 1806.  It is a hardy deciduous shrub often found around the West, often near ponds and streams. With maple-like leaves and yellow flowers with red fruit, this plant grows up to 5 feet tall in both the shade and sun.



Golden currant flowers provide nectar to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, and birds, bears and rodents will eat the fruit. This non-spiny plant will be an excellent attractive shrub for your landscaping needs.
