The FINE LINE® Improved Buckthorn is a slender deciduous shrub with unique willowy or grassy foliage on a narrow plant that will grow to 6 feet but be only 2 feet wide. The tight branching reaches right to the ground, creating a natural screen or hedge that needs no trimming. It also makes a great slender accent in shrub beds or formal settings, such as at the corners of a patio, or creating an avenue along a path. Ideal choice in colder zones. The combination of willowy casual and formal upright is totally unique and charming.

  • Natural slender profile, 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide
  • Graceful narrow grassy leaves
  • Attractive as a hedge or accent specimen
  • Fall colors of yellow and gold
  • Incredibly hardy to zone 2

Full sun is perfect for the FINE LINE® Improved Buckthorn, but it will take a little shade too. It grows readily in any well-drained soil, and established plants are tolerant of ordinary summer drought. It is fully hardy even in zone 2, and all the way into zone 7. Use some evergreen fertilizer in spring, and trim before the leaves emerge, if desired – it’s strictly optional. Pests and diseases are not a problem, and deer normally ignore this plant.
