Ribes malvaceum cv Dancing Tassels--Chaparral Current
Dancing Tassels: this currant is perfectly named. The pale pink pendulous posy packs really do polka. (Silly alliteration, huh?) Currents are edible, but I think that the fruits are too small to bother with. The birds love them. In bloom now in the California area of the UC Botanical Garden.
