Rhamnus frangula 'Ron Williams' P.P. #14,791

Lacy fern-like foliage.  Has a beautiful golden yellow Autumn show before shedding its leaves for the colder months.  Airy textured leaves. 

Great for 'tight spots' in landscape. Great as a narrow hedge, accent specimen, & will frame doors or pathways very nicely. This is a non-invasive shrub.     

Drought Tolerant (once established)        * Deer Resistant *
