Ribes viburnifolium grows in shade to part shade and is deer resistant. Originating from Santa Catalina Island and Baja California, this evergreen CA Native perennial shrub grows 3-4’ tall and up to 6’ wide. It features heavily scented dark green foliage with waxy and shiny leaves. The stems are red and the leaf venation is also reddish so the plant has a contrasting red brick with a green trim appearance. It will survive dry to moderate water as long as it has good drainage. It’s also summer-dry tolerant in clay and is a great ground cover for dry shady areas.
