This is an exotic plant, very invasive in central areas of Chile, but also very beautful due to its abundant golden flowers. In Chile entire areas turn gold in early spring when it begins to bloom.
It was used as a source of yellow dye from flowers and for soil stabilization due to its extreme capacity to grow almost anywhere. This tenacity is also its limitation, because it can easily become a weed. The cooked flowers can be used a source of food, and the trunk produces an edible gum. The bark has a high tannin content
