Andean Gold™ Saw-toothed Azara

Azara serrata

An extremely fast growing evergreen tree or large shrub. Its rounded glossy green foliage is smothered by clusters of bright golden flowers in early summer. This superior selection was made by Dan Hinkley from his Chilean collections. Sensational as a singular specimen or as a hedge or screen.
