Algerita, Algerito, or Currant of Texas

This is Algerita, Algerito, or Currant of Texas by its several common names. This densely leafy evergreen shrub usually flowers in February through April. The very attractive bundles of yellow flowers seen now will produce red berries as fruit later on in the spring. The wood and roots were used as a source of yellow dye by the early settlers. #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
