Description:
The Buffalo Currant is native to the North American prairies and grows in an extraordinary range of climates and soil types. The berries were originally used by the First Nation people to flavour pemmican. A distant relative of the more common currants and is probably more closely related to the gooseberry.

The light bluish-green leaves resemble small maple leaves that turn a light yellow colour in the fall. The clove-scented, golden yellow flowers on short racemes have dark pink to red central petals that turn into dark purple berries in the middle of August that will stay on the tree for up to 6 weeks. Buffalo currants are widely used as an ornamental shrub because it needs virtually no maintenance at all.
