Popular golden foliaged dwarf evegreen for sunny locations. Habit is rounded with a flat top of dangling thread-like branches. Looks like an inverted mop. Base color is deep green with bright gold on top. Holds its golden color through the winter months.

This variety seems to have sunburn problems in the full sun here on the West Coast. Plants growing in the Midwest and East Coast don't seem to have this issue. Higher humidity levels in the summer seem to prevent the sunburn.
