    Fine Line Improved is a unique update that has green, lush, and full foliage from tip to toe. It has bright yellow foliage in the fall. 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.
