a compact, dense, spreading evergreen shrub to about 4' tall by 5-6' wide, it is one of the better golden foliaged plants available. The warm, almost-but-not-quite-orange tone looks great against dark backgrounds. Give it at least some direct sunlight or it is inclined to fade to chartreuse. Pink flowers are an added bonus.
