Flowering Currant Hedge Plants Description

Flowering Currant (Ribes Sanguineum) is deciduous and its flowers appear before the leaves. The flowers are formed in showy crimson pendulous highly scented clusters often smothering the plant and are an excellent early nectar for bees. They are followed in Autumn by blue/black currant like fruits with a white bloom which are suitable for us to eat. Its tooth serated leaves have a strong scent when crushed. You can view our whole collection of edible hedging plants here.

Flowering Currant with grow in most soils other than very alkaline, it must however have some moisture, and will perform well in full or partial sun or even light shade. It is suitable for coastal situations. View all of our flowering hedge plants and hedging for exposed sites

Pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from november to late April/early May.

Further Information
Further Information

Planting distance is very much a matter of choice. For bare roots, 3 plants per metre is adequate, 5 is good, 7 makes a dense hedge quicker. Smaller plants are generally planted at higher density than tall plants.

Pot grown plants have recommended densities shown but you can increase or reduce this density dependent on your level of patience.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

There is a view that Flowering Currant should be pruned in late summer but we find it performs better as a hedge if you cut back flowering stems to a strong pair of buds immediately after flowering.
