What are currants?

Fruit bearing shrub

Native to the Americas

Can be found growing wild in some areas

Easy to grow in your landscape

Attractive shrub – usually 3 – 5′ tall, nice fall color

Edible fruit – juice, jam, pies, some varieties taste great fresh.

Can handle part shade

I grow black, red, and white currants plus Golden Currant which gets its name from the yellow flowers. In my part shade front yard they are a nice addition to the landscape. A landscape where I worked had espaliered red currants along the garden fence.
