      Fine Line Improved from Proven Winners is a unique update that has green, lush and full foliage from tip to toe. Dense branching provides good coverage for a space-saving hedge, and gives it even more presence as a specimen. Like the original, it sets far fewer fruits than weedy buckthorns, and among the fruits that do develop, only a very low percentage are capable of germination. It is drought tolerant once established and is deer resistant.

      Fine Line Improved reaches 5-7 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide at maturity. It is hardy in zones 2-7, plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily). No pruning is usually required, but may be pruned in late fall to remove dead or broken branches. Fertilize every spring with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food.

      1 gallon shrubs are 6-24 inches tall at shipment and quart shrubs are 5-8 inches tall at shipment depending on the season and plant.

      Please Note: Fine Line Rhamnus is restricted and cannot be shipped to the states of CT, IA IL, MA, ME, MN, NH, NY and VT.
