Can I replace my Alpine currant with some better currants?
The bush with fall color on the left is a Ribes alpinum according to a tag. I have never seen any flowers or berries but maybe I haven't looked close enough. I saw some posts on gardenweb that say you need multiple currant plants to get fruit?
This is in Colorado near Denver and the picture is looking north, so there is plenty of sun and wind, and not too much rain but occasional watering wouldn't be a problem The Ribes alpinum is very vigorous and hardy and I like how tall it is. Would another kind of tastier? currant grow well in this location? How big would they get eventually? I want a big bush, and I would be satisfied with a few handfuls of fruit. How many bushes should I plant to set fruit?
