Attribute detail


A tough shrub for sun or light shade, Chaparral Currant is adorned with pink flowers from December through March. Does well in hot inland conditions, but also thrives on the coast. Olive-green foliage will drop in response to hot dry weather, or judicious summer water can be applied to keep the foliage a bit longer.
