Red Currant (Ribes rubrum) flower cluster grow from the twig cuttings. 紅醋栗的花串從扦插的枝條冒出.

So hardy and so easy to grow! This shrub can be grew in sun or shade. Though the growth in partial shade probably will be the most ideal. Red currant is more attractive than white or black currant because its red fruit colour in summer. Even though its mature size can be up to 3′-5′(H) x 4′(W), it is very easy to prune to control the plant size. USDA Zones:3-8.

紅醋栗是極其強健,容易栽種的落葉灌木. 初春開花,夏天結紅色小漿果透亮小巧. 全日照到陰暗處都能生長的很好. 除紅色的品種外,常見的頦有黑色和白色的醋栗品種. 繁殖方式以扦插方式為主,種子的話要第2或第3年才會開花. 一般壽命年限為15-30年左右. 成熟株高約3-5呎,寬幅約為3-5呎,但容易修剪成想要的大小. 非常耐寒.

Very cold hardy and low maintenance!  Very easy and fast to root by cuttings from mature plant in water or potting soil indoors in late fall.  You will see each branch nod will send roots then you can cut individually so you can have many rooted cuttings produced from a twig quickly.

This plant when grow in full sun to partial shade will have the maximum crop but will be too tart to eat straight rather than in shade which is sweeter, good to eat straight although this way plant produces less quantity of berries.  I found it is interesting.

Last year I tried let plants over winter outdoors but all died. 😦 https://myfoodandflowers.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/%e5%b7%b4%e8%a5%bf%e8%80%90%e5%af%92%e7%9a%84%e5%a4%a7%e8%8a%b1%e8%a5%bf%e7%95%aa%e8%93%aebrazilian-passion-flower-vine-passiflora-caerulea/?preview=true&preview_id=2314&preview_nonce=ae05e6b4f2&post_format=standard

This early year I tried to grow from seed pact again in late winter and planted them out in the ground early in spring. It is now blooming the first flower and I can smell its fragrance. 🙂 So far, this plant has 6 buds. I have other plants but so far no luck. I am looking forward the red one to flower soon..

去年年初從種子包的種子種出的巴西耐寒的大花西番蓮由於沒有越冬成功死掉了.https://myfoodandflowers.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/%e5%b7%b4%e8%a5%bf%e8%80%90%e5%af%92%e7%9a%84%e5%a4%a7%e8%8a%b1%e8%a5%bf%e7%95%aa%e8%93%aebrazilian-passion-flower-vine-passiflora-caerulea/?preview=true&preview_id=2314&preview_nonce=ae05e6b4f2&post_format=standard
今年再接再勵繼續孵種子,春天溫度穩定雖還冷就地植了,現在已開了第一朵花了,湊上去聞還是香的! 其它的植株還沒像這株有花苞出現,好期待紅花的品種也能儘早開花.
