Clove Currant, or Ribes aureum, is a fragrant versatile shrub, thriving in zones 4-8. It reaches about 6 feet in height, suitable for various garden sizes. In spring, it showcases bright yellow, clove-scented flowers, attracting pollinators.

Following the blooms, shiny, black, edible berries emerge, perfect for fresh eating or preserves. This low-maintenance shrub is drought-tolerant, adapts to different soils, and thrives in both full sun and partial shade.

Besides its aesthetic appeal, Clove Currant supports wildlife, providing nectar and berries for birds and small animals. It's an ideal choice for those seeking to add fragrance, beauty, and ecological value to their gardens.
