Ribes alpinum

Ribes alpinum
Ribes alpinum
Family grossulariaceae
Life cycle shrub
Flowers yellow (April)
Size 4' so far

Purchased this as Ribes rubrum, but it looks nothing like the specimens I grew from seed, nor like photos of that species I've found elsewhere – so this is something different. James from Ohio, my source for all botanical information, tells me it's Ribes alpinum, so that's what I'll go with.
It bloomed for the last couple of years, but I don't think it set fruit. It may be in too shady a position.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
