Has anyone heard of buckthorn 'fine line' (rhamnus frangula)?
I am not really familiar with this one, or any other buckthorn, but I saw this in Dominion Seed House's catalogue (page 111) and it looks sort of interesting.
It says it has fern like foliage and 6 feet tall but only a couple of feet narrow. The picture almost reminds me of bamboo or a grass. They say hardy to zone 3 but one website said zone 2 and not very invasive. Any soil. One website said sun to part shade.
I just am wondering if it, or other types of buckthorn are hardy for northern climates or if this plant is as good as they say.
Just starting to browse through catalogues, -25C here this morning, but it's suppose to warm up later in the week.
Here is a link that might be useful: 'fine line' buckthorn
