Rhamnus (Buckthorn)

Buckthorns are prized for their ornamental qualities, including attractive foliage, colorful berries, and delicate flowers. Many species feature glossy green leaves that turn vibrant shades of yellow, orange, or red in the fall. One of the defining features of Buckthorns is their small, berry-like fruit, which ranges in color from red and orange to black and purple, making Buckthorns an important component of wildlife-friendly landscapes.

Benefits of transplanting

  • Bushier Appearance: Trimming the roots and tops during transplanting results in the growth and development of new branches, making the plant bushier, fuller, and visually more appealing
  • Stronger Immune System: Forces growth of fibrous lateral roots, increasing the surface area for nutrient and water absorption, leading to healthier growth, improved resilience against environmental conditions, and enhanced defense against diseases
  • Improved performance: Creates thicker foliage that acts as a protective barrier against strong winds, sunlight, and noise pollution. Benefiting wildlife by providing a more secure shelter with increased food availability.
