OTHER: The Golden Currant is an ornamental shrub with edible fruit that is native to western North America. In spring, clusters of spicy vanilla scented flowers attract butterflies & HUMMINGBIRDS. The flowers are edible, & have a very sweet taste! This gourmet delicacy can be used as a desert or salad topping. (Or wear them in your hair for an on-the-go snack! Ha ha!)
The fruit is a berry called a Currant, & currants are about the same size as a blueberry. The fruit of this Currant starts out yellow & turns black at maturity. Currants can be eaten raw, made into jams & pies, or dried & stored for later use.
These shrubs tolerate most soil conditions including sandy or clay soil. Their water usage is extremely flexible. They can withstand drought or standing water! These properties make it an excellent choice for erosion control. The Currant Shrub also provides habitat for woodland creatures, & birds & other small animals will enjoy eating the seeds if you decide to share some. The berries do look stunning against the lovely orange to red fall leaves!
