Grown for its clove-scented flowers and its edible berries, this small to medium-sized deciduous shrub from central and western North America makes an excellent subject for the ornamental or culinary garden. Its showy drooping clusters of small, five-lobed, bright yellow flowers appear in mid- to late spring, and are visited by hummingbirds. Small, tart, juicy, several-seeded "currants" follow, ripening to black or yellow in mid- or late summer. The smooth, light green, three-lobed leaves turn purplish tones in fall. The former Ribes odoratum is now considered to belong under Ribes aureum as variety villosum.
This tough and adaptable shrub does well in a wide range of soils in full to partial sun. It needs some winter chill to perform well. Use it in mixed borders, edible plantings, and hedges.

Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.
If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.
For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
