Rhamnus Frangula or Alder Buckthorn is a bushy, deciduous plant featuring glossy dark green leaves that turn a lovely red in autumn. It flowers from May to June with clusters of green flowers followed by red fruit, ripening to black in September. Although Rhamnus Frangula is not the most ornamental looking plant, it is absolutely great for attracting wildlife. Birds love the fruit, particularly thrushes, and the flowers attract insects such as butterflies. Rhamnus Frangula will grow well in any acidic and fertile soil and thrive in boggy conditions, such as near a river. They will not grow on chalk. They can tolerate partial shade and exposed windy locations. All in all it is a great plant for a hedge.
