Red Currant
Diablo Ninebark

Red Currant is a short deciduous shrub native to western Europe. It features five-lobed, maple-like leaves and bright red berries.

Red Currant berries are more sour than black currant, but they can be eaten raw and are excellent for jams and sauces. This member of the gooseberry family is related to the wild currants and gooseberries of North America.

Diablo Ninebark is a small, low maintenance, multi-stemmed shrub, that is used to add texture or color to any yard. This plant grows dark purple leaves in the spring and grows slightly faster than Common Ninebark. It features flaky red to brown bark, clusters of white flowers, and long, maple-like leaves. Diablo Ninebark can make a dense and colorful hedge, or it can be an attractive ornamental by itself.
