Inland gooseberry is a streamside shrub of medium height with a loose, open shape. It likes a bit more sun than our other streamside currants (prickly and northern black currants), and unlike them it also produces berries that are palatable to humans (they're all edible, this species just happens to taste nice). They don't produce many berries per bush, so you'll want several if you've got your eye on preserving. 

 

Plant in a moist or irrigated area with fireweed, horsemint, sneezeweed, and pearly everlasting, or  perhaps as a thicket with elderberries, hawthorn, and chokecherry.
