Here are some photos of Ribes Sanguineum (flowering currants) - King Edward V11 and Elkington's White
Ribes genus (Currant). There are about 150 species of evergreen and deciduous, ornamental and fruiting shrubs. The berries are mostly edible and are either white, scarlet, purple, green or black. They have long arching stems, with lobed mid-green leaves. They produce a mass of yellow, red or pink blossoms appearing in late winter or early spring.
Deciduous or Evergreens, Shrubs
Grown for their edible fruits (currants and gooseberries) or their bird attracting flowers. Suitable for coastal conditions. Attracts butterflies.
They are fully to frost hardy and will need moist, rich soil with full sun to semi-shade. Cut out some older shoots after flowering and prune straggly, old plants hard in winter or early spring.
Take hardwood cuttings in winter for the deciduous species and increase evergreens by semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
Leaf spot, honey fungus and aphids may attack foliage.
