Grossulariaceae (Currant and Gooseberry Family)
Wax currants in full flower in Cowiche Canyon in Yakima, WA. While these are particularly beautiful, the fruits may cause a burning sensation when eaten. These are often found growing with the closely-related golden currant which is not only edible, but delicious!
