Description

The erect, thorn-less, deciduous plant grows three to twelve feet tall, with reddish- bRibes sanguineum is brown bark. Leaves are alternate, rounded, one to three inches wide (occasionally larger), and lighter in color. Flowers are light-pink to deep-red, tubular, and held in upright to drooping clusters of 10-20 flowers. Dark-blue to black berries.

Habitat

Dry to somewhat moist, wooded or open sites, from the coast to the Cascades.  Intolerant of saturated soils.  Full sun to partial shade, but may get leggy in shade.

Beneficial Uses

Flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies.  Berries are persistent and do not ripen all at once, providing a longer term food source for numerous birds, small mammals, deer, and elk.
