Product Description

Deeply-Hued Foliage and Year-Round Visuals

Glossy green leaves grow on an upright, freely-branching silhouette of the Fine Line® Buckthorn Shrub, making it perfect as an accent or border in any area. And since it’s easy to maintain, with deer resistance and drought tolerance, it’s perfect for effortless planting.

So, the Fine Line® is both elegant and easy. You get month-to-month visual interest because the Buckthorn boasts white-green florals in the spring, wildlife-attracting berries in the summer, and eye-catching yellow tones in autumn.

But not only is this non-invasive variety an excellent substitute for your old groundcover or bushes, it’s also highly adaptable, thriving in a variety of soil types and conditions. And it performs so well because we’ve planted, nurtured and shipped it with the utmost care. We’ve nurtured the Fine Line® from day one so you reap the rewards…without effort.

Now, your Fine Line® will thrive in your garden. We’ve given it the best start so it’s ready to thrive. Order your Fine Line® Buckthorn Shrub today – this proven performer sells out quickly!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: An adequate planting location is important for your Fine Line®’s growth. When you’re ready to plant this variety, choose an area with well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade – preferably an area that’s slightly shaded but receives 4 to 8 hours of sun each day. When it’s time to plant, dig a hole that’s twice the size of the shrub’s root ball, place your plant and back fill the soil. Finally, water to settle its roots.

2. Watering: Water your plant regularly during the first full growing season, about once per week. If you’re not sure when to water your Buckthorn, simply check the soil about 2 to 3 inches down – if the soil is dry in this area, it’s time to water. After your Fine Line® is established, less frequent watering is fine.

3. Pruning: Pruning is unnecessary for this shrub, but if you’d like to shape it, trim it during the fall season.

4. Fertilizer: Apply a well-balanced, time-release fertilizer to your Buckthorn in the spring for best results.
