    Going to guess on something from the Willow family (Salix) or a fine leaf buckthorn.

    I agree. Looks like Rhamnus frangula (cut leaf buckthorn). Great plant that is not used very often in the landscape.

    well there is two cultivars of buckthorn. 'Columnaris' and 'Asplenifolia'

    I dont konw which cultivar it would be. 'Columnaris' is uprite but has a wider leaf. 'Asplenifolia' has a thinner leaf but the plant gets ten feet wide. So what u guys think?

    Looking in my Dir 'Manual of Woody Landscape Plants' it looks like a leaf from a 'Asplenifolia'.

    Do yourself a favor and spend the 60 bucks and pick one up. Its a great book to have.

    I do have Dirr. I was thinkin 'Asplenifolia' also but Dir says it gets 10 feet wide so that is why I was confused. thanks
