A cold hardy disease resistant variety. A top ranked clone for use in the midwest states.
Bucky's growing habit is unique in that it has a tendency to have multiple stems and branches rather than a single, tall stem. This makes Bucky a good choice when creating thick, tangled screens or cover.
Vertical growth of Bucky is approximately 1/2 that of other clones, as it gets "wide" first, then tall.
These extra long cuttings are slightly smaller in diameter than our standard 12" cutting, but because of their increased length they can be planted much deeper. Ideal for dry conditions or other challenging sites. They should be planted a minimum of 12" deep (preferably deeper) to realize the benefit of these longer cuttings. Use our 24" long drill bit or similar tool to plant them.
