Not an edible currant but an ornamental one, and very pretty at that. Rock solid cold hardy, heaps of flowers, resilient and sturdy if neglected and blooms back to life with some TLC and a good prune. Makes a lovely informal hedge. Flower colour is generally mid-light pink but may vary from plant to plant.
