Attribute detail


Native to the Coast ranges of California, this variety of Golden Currant is found along streams and forest edges. It prefers a similar situation in the garden, with morning sun or light shade, and regular water. It can reach 9 feet tall and spread underground, and is stunning in bloom, with drooping clusters of yellow flowers that fade to red before the blue-black currants appear. The best tasting of the native currants, but not the easiest to grow. Beautiful specimens of this plant can be seen at Rancho San Antonio County Park off Highway 280.
