Life in Newburgh on Ythan

By Talpa

A smelly yet beautiful plant.

The flowering currant Ribes sanguineum,  which is native to North America, was introduced into cultivation by the 19th century Scottish botanist David Douglas, the man after whom the Douglas fir was named.
It is a very beautiful shrub; it is just a pity that it smells so terribly of tom cat pee!
