Creating Thoughtful, Livable Spaces For You in Loudoun County
Is anyone else growing the evergreen laurel currant (Ribes laurifolium)? Although mine is barely 18 in. high and has only been in the ground a couple of years, it is already flowering profusely. The flowers came out before the beginning of February and still look great. The ÂbookÂ says that it will eventually get 4-6 ft. high, but it appears that it doesnÂt have to be mature before putting on a plenty of blooms..
The leaves are quite large and leathery for such a small plant. The habit is spreading but still restrained. Mine gets about a half dayÂs sun in the summer but is in a wind-protected area. It got down to about 10F here this winter and last year we had over 2 feet of snow on the ground for several weeks. It came through both of those seasons with flying colors.
IÂd recommend this to anyone looking for an evergreen winter-blooming shrub in our climate.
