In celebration of the arrival of spring, stroll through the garden and enjoy the many pink and white flourishes in both expected and unexpected places.
Both of these natives can be found in the spring garden. While red flowering currant grows from 5’ - 12’, its taller sister,’Pokey’s Pink’, can grow from 12’ - 15’ tall. Both put forth racemes of tubular flowers that are a very popular early food source for hummingbirds, though the red flowering currant has darker pink flowers than ‘Pokey’s Pink’. The resulting currants, later in the season are reported to be quite seedy and best left for birds.
