I've just discovered, when I tried to order some blackcurrant bushes and jostaberries that it is illegal to grow them here in Virginia. I did some research and discovered why.
I also found out that certain hybrids of ribes are not illegal. Does anyone know the names of these hybrids. If not, can you suggest where I might find this information?
any info would be greatly appreciated... thanks
I looked it up to be sure, and you are right about the law forbidding them is still on the books, but yesterday I was at a well-known and long established nursery near C'ville, and they sell currants. Only one variety dsays it's rust resistant.
