at Digging Dog
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.
Size: 10' 0"–16' 0" high x 8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
Azara dentata (S-0462)
