Golden currant is hardy and grows 6 to 8 feet tall and spreads 8 to 12 feet. The shrub transplants well, has a moderately rapid growth rate and forms suckers. It tolerates a range of light exposures and soil types, and shearing, and it is used on difficult sites. The tubular, yellow, fragrant flowers appear in midspring just after the leaves. Dark purple fruits are also produced.

One cultivar is listed: 'praecox'--flowers larger, with petals tipped in red.
