A large deciduous shrub from the Western Caucasus. Bean calls it 'the best of the Buckthorns' and the magnificent
foliage is quite unlike the species I am used to. I saw it in a nursery, had no idea what it was and brought it
home with me. I was relieved to discover it is hardy and easily grown though I doubt it will appreciate wind
when it is eventually planted out.
