The Berries Gallery:
Berries portraits of
'White Icicle' Flowering Currant
Blue-black currants of Ribes sanguineum 'White Icicle'
are shown in September at the end of their long summer presence.
This species is considered mainly an ornamental shrub because
the flowers are so numerous & gorgeous, but the fruits are
bland compared to other Ribes species, but they are even so edible.
Before the arrival of immigrant whites, these berries were a
normal part of Northwest native peoples' diet.
For more about this shrub, see the
Ribes sanguineum 'White Icicle' main page
& see the
'White Icicle' Flowering Currant page in the Autumn Leaves gallery
& for its enpurpled winter limbs, see
'White Icicle' Currant Page along the Winter Bark Garden Walk
