    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.

    • 5-7 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide at maturity
    • Grow in zones 2-7
    • Plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily)

    Care: 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.

          Great experience

          Easy ordering, fast shipping. I was so happy I was able to get the improved buckthorn this year when I couldn't find it in my local garden centers. It arrived healthy and safe. Will order from PWD again!
