Creeping Juniper is a low maintenance, spreading, ground cover shrub capable of growing in some of the worst soil and rocky conditions.

You will love this shrubs' pleasant fragrance and year-round color. A beautiful accent or foundation plant, Creeping Juniper has scaly foliage and is commonly used by landscapers to add texture under trees or flower beds. Consider planting Creeping Juniper in areas where grass is difficult to mow or maintain.

The Northern Red Currant is also known as the Swamp Red currant due to its preference for moist soil. As long as the soil is wet, this shrub can live in any degree of sunlight.

The currant itself is a bright red-purple berry enjoyed by many animals and some people for its sour flavour, similar to garden red currants. The flowers of this shrub are tiny and red or greenish-purple.
