Golden currant makes a great specimen when planted where the flowers' fragrance and the fall color can be enjoyed. It's also effective in a mass planting as a hedge or screen, thanks to its dense foliage and branch structure. Golden currant features an upright, rounded form with medium texture. Combine it with yuccas, low-growing junipers like Juniperus horizontalis 'Taylors Blue' or 'Blue Star', and Spanish Gold broom (Cytisus purgan 'Spanish Gold'). Native grasses and fine-textured perennials such as columbine (Aquilegia spp) and prairie coneflower (Ratibida columnifera) also make nice companion plants for golden currant. don't plant in heavy wet clay
