Description / Rhamnus Fine Line® Buckthorn

Meet Rhamnus frangula Fine Line®, a Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrub, that redefines what you expect from a buckthorn. This innovative cultivar combines the delicate beauty of fern-like foliage with a sleek, upright growth habit, creating a plant that is both striking and easy to maintain. Reaching up to 6 feet in height and only about 2 feet wide, Fine Line, A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrub, is the perfect choice for gardeners seeking to add vertical interest to their landscapes without the worry of invasive spread.

One of the standout features of Fine Line is its finely divided, airy foliage. Each leaf is slender and deeply cut, resembling the delicate fronds of a fern. This unique texture adds a soft, ethereal quality to the garden, contrasting beautifully with broader-leaved plants. Despite its refined appearance, this buckthorn is tough and resilient, thriving in a variety of conditions and requiring minimal care to maintain its elegant form.

Fine Line is incredibly versatile in the landscape. Its narrow, upright habit makes it an excellent choice for creating a hedge or screen, particularly in tight spaces where a traditional hedge would be too bulky. It's also a fantastic accent plant, adding height and structure to borders, mixed beds, or even as a centerpiece in container gardens. The plant's consistent form and low maintenance needs make it ideal for both formal and informal settings, from meticulously designed gardens to more naturalistic layouts.

Unlike many older buckthorn varieties, Fine Line is non-invasive. It produces very few fruits, all of which are sterile, so you won't have to worry about unwanted seedlings popping up around your garden. This quality makes it a responsible choice for gardeners who want the beauty of buckthorn without the risk of it spreading beyond its intended area.

Growing Fine Line is straightforward. It flourishes in full sun to partial shade and adapts well to a range of soil types, as long as the soil is well-drained. It is both cold- and heat-tolerant within its hardiness range, performing well in Zones 3-7. Once established, this plant requires minimal watering, making it a good option for drought-prone areas.

To create a beautiful, low-maintenance hedge, space Fine Line plants about 18 inches apart. This spacing allows the plants to grow together, forming a dense, narrow hedge that provides privacy and a touch of elegance. Whether used as a single specimen or in mass plantings, Rhamnus Fine Line is sure to add a touch of sophistication to your garden with its unique form and graceful foliage.

Choose Rhamnus frangula Fine Line for your garden and enjoy the perfect blend of style, structure, and sustainability. Its refined appearance, easy-care nature, and non-invasive qualities make it an outstanding choice for modern landscapes.
