|Ribes sanguineum. The Latin name means "bloody", but the colour varies from pale pink to almost red. This vibrant pink is the most common in this area.|
Red-flowering currant is native to BC.This week, they're blooming in the museum woods at the end of my street, along the sides of the road in various places, and probably, unseen, in open areas along our unvisited coast.
The berries are bluish black. They are edible, but tasteless, to humans. The birds like them, though. And hummingbirds visit the flowers.
