Ribes odoratum 'Crandall'
Bright green leaves are toothed, round to ovate, 3 to 5 lobed, to 3 inches in length, turning purplish-red in fall. The unusual yellow, clove-scented, tubular flowers are held in pendent racemes, 2 inches in length. Flowers appear in spring and are long lasting. The fruit is large, black, sweet-tart, and can be used for jam or jelly. Along with excellent fall color, makes this a plant with three seasons of garden beauty. Thrives in all but dry sand or wet clay soils. Prune, if needed, early summer. * 2004 GreatPlants Winner
