NH-CHECK FOR PERMIT ****CANNOT SEND TO DE, ME,NC, NH, NJ, WV.!****MASS NEEDS PERMIT (Ribes species) Although not well known to American gardeners, the pleasant, sweet-tart taste of currants has been cherished for many years in Europe, often used for jam, strudel and syrup. Deciduous currant bushes add upright structure (4-5’ tall) with fine texture to naturalistic plantings or mixed hedges, and they blend nicely with evergreen shrubs. The dense plants attract nesting birds, the flowers are favored by hummingbirds, and the fruit draws robins and thrushes. USDA Zones 3-8 unless otherwise noted. We offer well-rooted bushes.
