There is a need for attractive, low, evergreen suckering shrubs that are suitable for woodland areas. Ribes davidii fits that description. Its leathery leaves, which are lightly toothed along their edges, take on red tones during the winter. The leaves measure a little more than an inch in length and an inch in width at their largest. This shrublet has both male and female flowers - the male being upright and the female found in clusters of 2 to 3 at the leaf-axils. Our plants have not fruited but we are told that fruits will be small and purple. This is found in mixed deciduous and evergreen forests as well as on slopes and in rocky areas in its native range in China.
