Pink flowering currant, ribes sanguineum v. glutinosum "Claremont"
This is a california native that has beautiful spring flowers, maturing in to purple/bluish berries with a silvery sheen.

Humming birds and native bees love the flowers and the berries attract grossbeaks, thrushes, waxwings and other birds.

This shrubby small tree has multiple trunks and does not get too large 10-15 feet at most. Making it a great addition to any garden.
