With fine, golden yellow colored, thread-like foliage and a manageable, mature size, Gold Mop fits into any landscape. The golden yellow color is best in full sun as it fades to a yellow green when planted in shadier locations. Prune to help control size although does take away some of the "mop," or pendulous, feature of foliage of the plant. This evergreen is drought tolerant once established; however, it will benefit from a watering during times of drought.
