Alpine Currant Review by rox717
I have alpine currants and have had numerous problems each summer for 5 years! I love the bushes but am struggling whether to remove them or not! Last summer all of the leaves died and it was almost bare by mid-July. But, then it had some new buds by late summer and came back great this spring. It started to yellow/bronw again and I have tried everything to help it along. Nurseries said: too wet, too dry, too alkaline, gravel in the soil, electric trimmers gave it disease (?!?!?), etc. I have them planted in front of my patio and they are about 4' tall. I am worn out trying to keep them going when I don't really know what the problem is! Soil tested high PH which I have tried to treat, too. Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!
Alpine Current Review by mulchlady
Appears to be a plant very adaptable to northern U S Climates. Review does not address Heat Zones that the plant will tolerate. The indication that it will grow in shade or sun makes it a plant to consider.
