    Oh! I like that, Chloris!

    A cracking plant. Definitely should be more widely grown. I’ve grown Azara microphylla in the past but I can’t remember how hardy they are.

    • Chloris says:

      They need a sheltered position so no good for you, I’ m afraid.. They are reasonably hardy although very hard late frosts will make the leaves go black. They recover though.

    How lovely, I recently bought one, much smaller than yours though!xxx

    • Chloris says:

      It is fast growing. I grew this from a cutting from a tree I had in a previous garden. It is only about 7 or 8 years old from a little twig.

  4. Pauline says:

    I believe that they have a wonderful perfume too.

    • Chloris says:

      I know, they are supposed to smell lovely. I can’ t detect any scent at all on mine. But it is pretty, much showier than Azara microphylla.

  5. We have Powderpuffs here, of course they don’t look like those -they are pink and red!

    Sweet little yellow powderpuffs. I always admire this plant in bloom!

  7. I thought it looked like my Azara microphylla, but larger – and later – flowers. Do they smell just as gorgeous? So pleased you’ve shown us this gem!

  8. Chloris says:

    It is supposed to smell lovely Ali but I cannot detect any scent at all. It is pretty though. I grew it from a cutting. I don’ t know whether it is easy or I struck lucky. I will take some cuttings later this summer and see if I can get any more going for anyone who would like one. I was amazed how quickly it grew into a tree.

    Such a lovely shrub/small tree – the yellow always looks so stunning against brick walls

    I’ve just read your comment about growing from a little twig, that must very rewarding to see such a fine specimen now. Lovely!

  11. What a lovely shrub/tree! I’m not familiar with it. I looked it up and found out it’s only hardy to about 15F/-10C. So, of course it wouldn’t survive my winters. I will enjoy its beauty virtually on your blog. 🙂

    It’s an interesting – and attractive – genus. Too bad the only species that seems to be suited to my own area wants regular water.
