The Alpine Currant is a small and suckering member of the currant family that although preferring a neutral-acid soil, is otherwise easy to grow, tolerating quite dense shade. It is said to perform well in poor soils, getting to be about 1m high and wide.
As both male and female plants are required for fruit, it is often used as a low growing hedge or ground cover, spaced about 50cm apart. The berry is like a redcurrant though sweeter and less acid and about 5mm in size.
