Alpine Currant (Ribes alpinum)

$ 29.99 USD

2-5 gallon pots ranging in price from $29.99 to $49.99 Commonly grown for their lush foliage, Ribes alpinum, also called "alpine currants," are mound-forming deciduous shrubs that can grow up to 6’ tall. Their striking green foliage changes shades throughout the year, starting as bright green in the spring, dark green in the summer, and a warm yellow in the fall months. While alpine currants produce flowers, they are insignificant and can be hard to spot as they blend in with the foliage. Alpine currants are most infamous for their low-maintenance needs, their ability to adapt to a variety of growing conditions, and their ability to tolerate extreme winter temperatures.
