Ribes viburnifolium

Evergreen currant


A low-growing, evergreen shrub 2-3’H x 8’W, extends long reddish stems horizontally where the tips may root and establish new growth centers. Shiny, dark green leaves are lighter green or yellowish and leathery on the undersides with glands that exude a sticky, citrus-scented sap. Clusters of deep red flowers bloom in late winter and into early spring attract birds.
