Ben Lomond Black Currant Bush - NO SHIP to NC, WV, NH - 2.5" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
Location: Currants like morning sun, afternoon part-shade and buoyant air circulation. They can be grown in the high shade of fruit trees such as persimmon, as well as on the north side of buildings. Currants can withstand ocean winds but the salt air will burn the leaves and turn them ragged.
Soil: Currants are not finicky about soil but, in keeping with their proclivity for cold, prefer heavier soils richer in clay. A thick mulch of some organic material also keeps the soil cool in summer while adding humus to the soil. Sandy soils are less suitable for currants because they dry out too fast. The plants will not tolerate alkaline or salty soil.
Very productive, slightly larger growing version of Ben Sarek.

I received a strong, healthy dormant plant. Can't wait to watch it come out of dormancy.
