The Rampant Gardener

Other names include Glossy Buckthorn, Breaking Buckthorn or Black Dogwood.
Alder buckthorn is a native of Eurasia and North Africa. Alder buckthorn appears to establish on a variety of soils but typically inhabits wetter, less shaded and more acidic soils than common buckthorn.
Alder buckthorn has been cultivated for hedges, forestry planting and as wildlife habitat. Flowers are bisexual and primarily cross-pollinated; self-pollination may be limited because the anthers mature before the pistils are receptive. Pollen appears to be transported by insects, primarily flies. Mature plants are estimated to produce 430 - 1560 potential offspring each year .

Birds are attracted to the fruit of alder buckthorn and are believed to be the primary dispersal agent for its seeds
