Ribes sanguineum 'Brocklebankii'
Zoom In Photo:

Notes:
A new form of our native red flowering currant with wonderful gold leaves and pink flowers. The leaves emerge bright gold in spring and gradually cool to chartreuse by summer. Morning sun and afternoon shade would be ideal as the leaves can scorch in too much heat and light. But if you can get the spot right you will certainly be rewarded.

Geogrpahical Origin:
North America
Native Habitat:
Moist to dry forests and rock outcrops in lowlands and mountains.
