Rhamnus Fine Line is a lovely, fluffy, deciduous shrub with narrowly upright habit, slender, fern-like, glossy, dark green leaves, yellow in autumn, and clusters of small flowers in spring, followed by red to black berries. It’s a result of a cross-pollination between Aspleniifolia and Columnaris variety and combines feathery foliage of the first with the columnar habit of the later. Its seeds are not viable. Rhamnus Fine Line grows best in hummus rich, moist, well-drained soils, and thrives in full sun to partial shade. Once established, it is tolerant of dry conditions. It is extremely resistant to frost and, even planted in pots, it can withstand cold winters outside. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning but it can be clipped and shaped. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Fine Line Buckthorn is a lovely, versatile, landscaping plant, perfect as an accent specimen, informal narrow hedge, and for framing doors and pathways. It’s a non-invasive plant that does not weed around.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
