Azara microphylla


An elegant, small-leaved evergreen from Chili, belonging to Bixaceae. It grows at least 20 feet high, and makes a shapely bush of graceful outline.

The flowers are white and borne in summer. In the colder parts of the country it is often damaged in severe winters.

In the warmer counties, however, it forms a most useful evergreen.
