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.
