Columnar Shrub That Provides Texture but Saves Space

Fine Line Buckthorn is a deciduous shrub.  Use one as a foundation planting, or several as a backdrop for your perennial bed.  It also makes an excellent privacy screen.

If you need a versatile shrub and have limited space requirements, then Fine Line Buckthorn is for you.  This Proven Winner’s selection features fern-like foliage for a wispy appearance that will add texture to your landscape.  It’s narrow, columnar growth makes it a valuable addition to any area where you’d like a vertical accent in a small area. 

Fine Line Buckthorn will grow 5-7 feet tall, but only 2 feet wide.  It doesn't self-seed, so isn't weedy and also isn’t invasive (as some similar varieties are).  The foliage turns yellow for fall, so some autumn interest is an added bonus.

A truly versatile, deciduous shrub, Fine Line Buckthorn will easily find a home in one or more spots in your landscape this year.

* Tight, columnar habit
* Adaptable to a variety of soils
* Good container plant
* Drought tolerant (once established)
* Wildlife interest
* Urban tolerant
* Non invasive
* Proven Winner selection
* Deer resistant
