Bring the wonderful sweet-tart taste of Currants to your own backyard. Prized for making tasty preserves, Currants are also excellent plants for attracting an abundance of wildlife. The flowers are favored by hummingbirds and the dense plants attract nesting birds. Unlike most fruit crops that attract browsing deer, Currants aren't on their list of favorites. Best grown in morning sun with afternoon part-shade, Currants are not finicky about soil, but prefer heavier rich soils to retain moisture. Provide good air circulation and cover with a good layer of mulch. Ideal for use in naturalized settings or as a mixed hedge.
