Product information "Alpine currant 'Schmidt'"

The alpine currant is a compact, native, deciduous shrub that grows up to 1.5 m. It has a dense, upright habit. The petals have an inconspicuous, yellowish-green colour. The individual flowers are small and greenish-yellow. This plant forms dark red berries in autumn which resemble red currants, however they have an insipid taste.
Ribes alpinum is very well suited as a hedge and can be planted in shady locations. It is easily grown in average, well-drained soil. Pruning can take place at any time of the year or the plant can simply be allowed to grow naturally. It is extremely winter hardy.
