As a companion to Paul Lee Cannon’s article on the genus Ribes, which was featured in the January 2012 issue of Pacific Horticulture, we offer the following list of nurseries that usually offer a good selection of the species and cultivars of wild currants mentioned in the article. Be sure to contact any nursery before visiting to confirm that there will be any available.

Check also with your local botanical garden or native plant society, as various species and selections of Ribes are often available through seasonal plant sales hosted by these institutions and organizations.

Please be sure to mention Pacific Horticulture when contacting any of these vendors.
