(Buckthorn) Versatile Stature, Airy Texture and Multi-Functional
Rhamnus really knows how to make a statement in the landscape. The narrow upright habit and airy fern-like textured foliage fits well even in small areas to create an impressive accent plant. Rhamnus may be used to create narrow hedges or screens and the vertical stature makes it a great option for entrances. Also a great shrub for the patio/combination container.
A non-invasive Buckthorn, plant Rhamnus in full sun to part shade where it will grow to a height of 5-7 feet tall and 2-3 feet in width. Rhamnus is a deer resistant shrub choice that offers fall interest when the green foliage turns a buttery yellow color. No pruning is necessary.
