(Buckthorn) FINE LINE® Rhamnus is one of the coolest new shrubs on the market! This exciting new variety is an extremely useful, architectural plant that is perfect for 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. The fantastic feathery foliage of FINE LINE® turns buttery yellow in the fall and displays a beautiful bark in the winter for four seasons of interest! This non-invasive cultivar is an excellent, responsible replacement for older weedy varieties. APROVEN WINNERS® COLORCHOICE® Flowering Shrub.

Customer Reviews

Great Quality Review by Youngles | Zone: 5b
These arrived in perfect condition and great quality. I will definitely purchase from this nursery again. I'm using these plants as a border to outline the back of a very large flowerbed. (Posted on 10/18/2011)
Lovely Texture Review by Trudy | Zone: 6
Lovely fine textured plant I used in a planter for its height and texture. Looked wonderful! That is, until the Japanese beetles arrived - it was covered and eaten alive! I don't like to use pesticides, so if anyone has any suggestions? (Posted on 4/16/2009)
