The Green Mound Alpine Currant is an attractive and easy-to-grow dwarf deciduous shrub, forming neat mounds of foliage between 2 and 3 feet tall and wide. It doesn’t need trimming to be neat and attractive, but it is very easy to turn into perfect geometrical shapes or neat hedges. It’s a terrific substitute for boxwood in colder zones, and it also grows well on slopes and among rocks and gravel. Use it for edging and to bring structure to your garden beds, or even in planter boxes.

  • Neat rounded mounds of deep green
  • Perfect for globe forms and hedges
  • Good substitute for boxwood in colder zones
  • Very easy to grow and very cold-hardy
  • Grows well in all light conditions

Even in zone 2 you won’t see any winter-damage on the Green Mound Alpine Currant. It grows in any well-drained soil, including alkaline soils, clays and thin, rocky ground. It also takes to all light conditions, from full sun to light full shade, so it’s incredibly versatile around your yard. Pests, diseases and rabbits won’t bother it, and being a male plant it doesn’t carry the fungus that causes white pine blister rust in zone parts of the country.
