INDIAN CURRANT or coralberry makes an excellent permaculture this decorative little bush( 1 meter high) has an extensive fibrous root system that sends out suckers for bank stabilization and erosion control on steep slopes....probably the best bush for stabilizing and beautifying those shady embankments. Edible red fruit grows in abundant clusters all over the branches....the fruit hangs all winter long and thus can serve to feed winter wildlife and "very hungry skiers". Very hardy(Zone 2) and adaptable to many soil conditions and climate extremes. Should be included in our northern Canadian Forest gardens and permaculture plantings much more often..... as indestructible native food plant.  Want to stabilize your slope ...plant this hard to find wild species.
