Flowering currant is an upright shrub with thornless branches and lobed leaves that have an attractive 'curranty' aroma. In May-June, pendant deep-red flowers cover the shrub, making a striking display when planted as a hedge. The flowers are followed by small blue-black berries. It makes an excellent informal hedge (trim to shape after flowering) or can be planted in a mixed border. Grows well in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Average height and spread 4-5ft.
