The abundant green, glossy foliage forms a dense hedge. Grows well in sun or shade and is rarely bothered by insects or plant diseases. It produces small yellow flowers in the spring. The lobed leaves turn yellow in the fall.
The Alpine Currant can survive the coldest of winter climates with annual temperatures as low as -50° Fahrenheit. It does well in dry soils. Alpine currant is drought tolerant.
This plant can be pruned at any time. Birds will be attracted to the red berries it produces. It is very tolerant of urban conditions. Zones 2 to 7.
