WANTED: Ribes sanguineum seeds to trade
I have some Ribes sanguineum seeds from Van Dusen Botanical Garden which I decided not to sow since my neighbour has white pines and I don't want to infect them. It is a showy West Coast native shrub that blooms in spring with bright red panicles of flowers, followed by edible fruit (or so I'm told). It is an alternate host for white pine rust or something though so if you or your neighbours have white pine, don't grow currants! You can find an image and some more information about the plant at http://gardensnorth.com - look it up under "Woodies".
As for a trade, I'm not that interested in annuals. I have a lot of shade so most border perennials aren't much use to me either. I am interested in shade perennials though.
