Native to Chile, this choice evergreen shrub has glossy, oval, serrated leaves and dense clusters of extremely fragrant deep yellow flowers in late spring summer, occasionally followed by white berries. It does best in a warm or protected spot as severe winters can cause damage although our plants always recover here and produce their sweet perfume even more prolifically the following summer!
