Red-flowering Currant

Ribes sanguineum, the Red-flowering Currant, is found in the western United States and Canada—British Columbia south to Californoia and east to Idaho—from sea level to middle elevations. The bush is also grown in gardens and various varieties, and a range of white, pink or dark red flowers have been cultivated. They flower early in the spring and their fruits (described as tasteless or insipid) attract birds. Erika and I took this image on 12 March 2020 at Tumwater Falls in Olympia.
