Frangula alnus Asplenifolia

Frangula alnus ‘Asplenifolia’, commonly known as Alder Buckthorn Aspenifolia, is a deciduous shrub prized for its distinctive, fern-like foliage. The leaves are narrow, elongated, and deeply cut, resembling the fronds of a fern, hence its name. This shrub typically grows to a height and spread of 4 meters, forming a round-shaped habit.

In spring, small, inconspicuous greenish-white flowers appear, attracting pollinators like bees. These blooms give way to small, round, red berries in late summer to early autumn, which gradually darken to a deep purple-black as they ripen. The berries are a valuable food source for birds, making this shrub a wildlife-friendly addition to gardens.

‘Asplenifolia’ is a low-maintenance shrub that thrives in full sun to partial shade and adapts well to various soil types, including moist, well-drained soils. It is often used in mixed borders, woodland gardens, or as a specimen plant for its unique foliage texture and the interest it brings throughout the seasons. While it can tolerate some drought once established, regular watering helps maintain its vigour and berry production. Pruning can be done in late winter or early spring to shape the plant and encourage new growth.
