Azara dentata

Masses of sweet honey vanilla-scented fluffy golden-yellow flowers delight the senses in Spring on this tough, robust and effortless shrub from Chile. Grown against a part-shady wall or fence or up into a tree, it’s a super background subject with its dense, glossy, evergreen leaves and semi-weeping form to 10’ x 10’. Great for a side yard as well. Profuse.5-.75” blooms appear in glowing 3” clusters from March to May lighting up the shrub even in full shade! Tough, robust and fast, it will grow and bloom with abandon in decently draining soil and annual side-dress of compost. Non-aggressive roots, so it’s easy to place. Tolerates redwood roots ! Doesn’t mind being pruned to any shape. Long-lived. Bees, butterflies! Deer resistant!
