Grown for its clove-scented flowers and its edible berries, this small to medium-sized deciduous shrub from central and western North America makes an excellent subject for the ornamental or culinary garden. Its showy drooping clusters of small, five-lobed, bright yellow flowers appear in mid- to late spring, and are visited by hummingbirds. Small, tart, juicy, several-seeded "currants" follow, ripening to black or yellow in mid- or late summer. The smooth, light green, three-lobed leaves turn purplish tones in fall. The former Ribes odoratum is now considered to belong under Ribes aureum as variety villosum.
This tough and adaptable shrub does well in a wide range of soils in full to partial sun. It needs some winter chill to perform well. Use it in mixed borders, edible plantings, and hedges.
