Pink Sierra Currant.

1Gal Container (Up to 0)

Ribes nevadense, Pink Sierra Currant is a deciduous shrub to 3-5' and looks very similar to Ribes sanguineum glutinosum. This plant should be used as a pink show case around a mountain cabin but works fine in lower elevations also. Native to 4000-8000' throughout California. It will flower April to July with 6" hanging pink cascades. We have seen this in the Tioga Pass area, on Bear Mountain, Tehachapi, and above Fraizer Park. All are doing fine there.

This is one of those plants that can grow in creeks or not. It survives drought well but can grow almost in standing water. It has done fine here. 

Ribes nevadense, Pink Sierra Currant works on a east or  north wall mixed with Heuchera, Boykinia occidentalisRibes viburnifolium, Carpenteria californica and Ribes sanguineum glutinosum
