Ribes alpinum 'Aureum'
$15.00Unit price per
Hardy as heck variegated currant which has yellow foliage turning more lime-chartreuse as the season moves along. This is a pretty compact little deciduous shrub making a tangle of twigs to eventually 3 feet tall and as wide. We have ours out in full sun - that is coastal Washington sun mind you - and have seen no foliage burn. We've seen references to it being hardy to zone 2 so assume it is as unaffected by cold as a chunk of basalt. Little reddish fruit can be expected but it is the leaves you are after.
