Ribes cereum (Wax Currant)

Other names: Squaw Currant

Wax Currant is an upright shrub growing to six feet in height.  It prefers dry, sunny areas, but will perform in partial shade.  Wax Currant is very drought tolerant and likes rocky, dry soils, so well draining soils are needed.  The pink to white flowers grow in clusters at the ends of branches and are described by some as having a nasty odor.  The flowers give way to large red to orange berries.  Wax Currant is a common shrub east of the Cascade Crest and grows from mid elevations to alpine areas.  Contact us for pricing and availability.
