Named for the great English gardener, this evergreen flowering currant has pendulous fragrant creamy-white flowers in late winter-early spring. This is a very uncommon selection which is more compact than typical for the species and will give your garden chutzpah. Appreciates not having to bear winter winds and can take some dry shade.
An uncommon species collected in the Chinese Himalaya by Steve Hootman, one of the best plant hunters of the modern era. Smaller and more prostrate than R. laurifolium. Greenish flowers.
Hardy as heck variegated currant, which has yellow foliage turning more lime-chartreuse as the season moves along. This is a pretty compact little deciduous shrub making a tangle of twigs to eventually 3 feet tall and as wide. We've seen references to it being hardy to zone 2 so assume it is as unaffected by cold as a chunk of basalt. Little reddish fruit.
