Sam & Narda,
    Depending on where you live, I wouldn't plant or relocate a
thread-leafed buckthorn. Here in Minnesota the thread-leaf and the common
columnar variety have become terrible weeds. They take over areas and crowd
out the native vegetation. Nurseries here cannot sell them any longer. While
the thread-leaf buckthorn is a beautiful shrub the damage it does to the
native flora isn't worth it. You should be able to find something else that
give a similar effect.
