Features

Wonderful texture and a narrow form combine in a tough, adaptable plant.

A great landscape plant, Fine Line buckthorn combines the feathery foliage of ‘Asplenifolia’ with the narrow upright habit of ‘Columnaris.’ Use Fine Line in narrow hedgerows for privacy, as an accent plant, or even in a patio container. It’s a great vertical accent for the perennial garden, and the narrow habit is perfect for framing entrances. This is an extremely useful, architectural plant for the home or commercial landscape. This cultivar produces very few fruit, none of which have been shown to be viable. Fine Line Rhamnus is a responsible and environmentally friendly replacement for weedy, older varieties.
