Building Namesake

California currant


Ribes spp, California currant

California's currant species thrive in the multi-varied environments of California. These show-stopping shrubs are loved by birds for their delicious fruit, by insects and hummingbirds for their sweet winter nectar, and by humans for their fragrant leaves and rainy season flowers. Currants are found throughout the campus landscapes. In the Arboretum they are found hanging out in shade of their taller neighbors. The species featured in the photo, called the chaparral currant, Ribes malvaceum, loses its leaves but emerges in winter with eye-catching, chandelier-like flowers. Chaparral currants are easy to find in the Arboretum's Mary Wattis Brown Garden of California Native Plants. For more information visit the UC Davis Arboretum gardens webpage.
