The Golden Currant will hit all your senses with its spicy-scented fragrance, beautiful flowers, and delicious berries. The golden yellow flowers attract hummingbirds and monarch butterflies. The berries vary in colour from yellow, red or black when ripe. In the fall the green foliage turns red. This is a great choice for any gardener who wants to expand their edible plant collection. The Golden Currant is native to North America.
