Description: The best way to describe this plant's color is green with a golden hue - not nearly as yellow as 'Gold Mop' or 'Gold Spangle' and some of the other varieties we are growing now. It grows a bit more rapidly than the others. In 10 years the plant will probably spread between 3 and 4 feet with a height of only a foot to 24 inches (1 gallon - 2 to 3 years old). Its foliage is threadlike and gives a weeping, trailing effect. We have a plant across from our office approximately 30 years old that is 10 feet tall and 18 feet wide.
