Ribes sanguineum 'King Edward VII,' commonly known as Flowering Currant, is a deciduous shrub celebrated for its early spring display of vibrant, pendulous clusters of red flowers. Named after the British monarch, this cultivar adds a regal touch to gardens with its striking floral show and easy-care nature. 

The most distinctive feature of 'King Edward VII' is its profusion of vivid, crimson-red flowers that hang gracefully in long, drooping racemes. Blooming in early to mid-spring, the flowers attract pollinators and brings a burst of early colour to displays.
