The alpine currant is a small and suckering member of the currant family.

 Although preferring a neutral-acid soil, the alpine currant is otherwise easy to grow, tolerating quite dense shade. It is said to perform well in poor soils, getting to be about 1 m high and wide. 

 As both male and female plants are required for fruit, it is often used as a low growing hedge or ground cover, spaced about 50 cm apart. The berry is like a redcurrant though sweeter and less acid and about 5 mm in size.
