Evergreen Currant is a California native Ribes species known for its usefulness as a shade ground cover under oaks and deciduous trees. A sprawling shrub that can reach 3 to 4 feet high and 4 to 6 feet wide is functionally kept under three feet in the landscape with regular pruning. Its arching, dark red stems contrast beautifully with fragrant, deep green, glossy foliage that stands out in woodland understories. In early spring, it produces clusters of small, five-pointed, crimson red flowers that although are visible, do not stand out like many of the other native Ribes species. The fruit of this plant is edible.
