Golden currant (Ribes aureum gracillimum)
is a lovely drought-tolerant local native

Pink-flowering currant (Ribes sanguineum
is a beautiful shrub in full
bloom that is a big draw for hummingbirds


Chaparral currant (Ribes malvaceum) is a drought-tolerant,
evergreen shrub that looks great in the back of a bed

Fuchsia-flowered gooseberry (Ribes speciosum) is one of the
most beautiful shrubs in full bloom, and hummingbirds agree
