FINE LINE® BUCKTHORN

Rhamnus frangula 'Ron Williams'
PP14791 Plant propagation prohibited

Breeder
Buy Fine line® Buckthorn online. A great landscape plant, Fine Line® combines the feathery foliage of 'Aspenifolia' 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® is a responsible and environmentally friendly replacement for weedy, older varieties. Sterile variety, no seed produced.

Mature Height:

6-9 Feet
