This open-habited, deciduous shrub was named for the town of Claremont, CA, home of Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden which introduced it. Although the variety is found in coastal ranges in Santa Barbara County, it has been happy in our garden in the Pacific Northwest for more than a decade. The leaves of the variety are softer green than our own native. The flowers of Ribes 'Claremont' have paler centers. Hanging in showy eight-inch long clusters, their color darkens as they age. In the fall, the shrub bears rounded dark fruits that have a white bloom on them.
