Ribes sanguineum. Currant family. This shrub has palmate, 5-lobed leaves about 2.5" in size. The flowers are about 3/4", tubular, and pink in color at my site. They hang in clusters as pictured. This species likes semi-open lowland forests and thus does well by the wetland. This plant was flowering when I first started my journal observations but has since stopped. This follows its blooming season of March through May.
