Flowering Currant

If you want to see hummingbirds up close in springtime at the VanDusen Gardens, position yourself close (but not too close) to the flowering currant bush. The nectar of this Pacific Northwest native (which, ironically, I’ve yet to find it in the local nurseries) is irresistibly sweet.
