Red Flowering Currant
Ribes sanguineum var. glutinosum
This species is a choice shrub for anyone interested in growing some of the woody members of our native flora. In February, the plant is covered with drooping clusters of clear pink flowers. Fruit maturation following pollination brings berries that the birds enjoy. This is all accentuated by the shapely leaves that develop appealing autumn colors.
DISTRIBUTION: Many habitats from the North Coast and Outer North Coast Ranges to the Outer South Coast Ranges; < 1000 m.
