Wild Thyme - Ribes Odoratum - Buffalo Currant, Golden Currant
|1 x 0g
The most strongly scented of all the flowering currants. Pale yellowish-green flowers in small bunches cover the branches in spring just as the leaves begin to emerge. Sweetly scented of cloves, they fill the air with a rich, spicy fragrance in March and April.
An arching shrub with mid-green aromatic leaves that turn a stunning shade of bronze/red and purple in autumn.
All species in the Ribes genus produce edible fruit. The fruits of Ribes odoratum are glossy black and sweeter than a blackcurrant. The flowers are also edible but eating them will obviously reduce the fruit yield.
Extremely hardy, tough and resilient, happy in sun or part shade, with a long season of interest make this a must have for any garden!
Good for bees, butterflies and birds.
Available as a young shrub approx 18" tall in a 2L pot
Shelf Life: 3 Days
