Airy-fairy buckthorn with a delicate lightness to the entire plant -- or the look of a bad hair day (very stylish here in Portland). Deciduous shrub to 10' x 8'. Wispy, fern-like, dark green leaves with translucent edges change to glowing yellows and reds in autumn. Clusters of green flowers appear in spring; red fruit aging black stands out in the fall. Full to part sun with normal summer water. Frost hardy in USDA zone 3.

Its fantasic fern-like foliage, columnar (to 6' x 3') habit, AND non-invasiveness! make this new buckthorn a real find, perfect for screen, hedge, container, or specimen. Sun/Med

A remarkable mostly sterile form of the alder buckthorn with long, very narrow glossy leaves which give this 15' shrub/tree an overall feeling of lacy airiness. Sun/Med
