A fantastic foliage plant, Rhamnus frangula 'Asplenifolia' has very fine leaves, similar in appearance to some of the more dainty Acer palmatum (Japanese Maple) cultivars from a distance. These are a bright green in spring and summer before turning a lovely bronze-yellow in autumn before falling.

In winter once the leaves have fallen the attractive, pale-grey bark with its very conspicuous lenticels can be easily seen. An unusual and highly ornamental selection of our native alder buckthorn which also acts as a host plant for brimstone butterflies.
