Flow­er­ing cur­rant and tulips

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

Ribes san­guineum has be­come a weed along wa­ter­ways in some parts of the coun­try but you will of­ten see it in old cot­tage gar­dens where it was val­ued for its un­mis­tak­able spring scent. I came across this mag­i­cal lit­tle glade in an old lady’s place re­cently. Not sure of the tulip’s name but what a whop­per and the gen­tle tas­sels of the cur­rant make the per­fect com­ple­ment to these busty bowls of rasp­berry pinks.
