The shiny evergreen leaves are toothed, as the name implies, but that is hardly their most interesting feature. This handsome Chilean native bears paired dark green leaflets plus a unique shingle-like layer of tiny round leaves. Growing in a graceful somewhat open manner, extended arching branches host bountiful golden yellow blooms—clustered, fluffy, round starbursts—which exude a sweet fragrance, delighting all garden visitors, especially butterflies and hummingbirds. Exemplary as a verdant backdrop, screen or informal hedge, fast growing A. dentata tolerates redwood roots, responds well to pruning, relishes adequate drainage and requires protection from hot afternoon sun and cold winds.
