This dwarf evergreen shrub has bright golden foliage that turns to coppery gold in winter. Scale-like foliage appears in flat, fan-shaped clusters. An exceptional choice for rock gardens, and useful in borders or as a foundation plant. Makes a great low hedge in its natural form, or clipped for a formal look. Best foliage color in full sun.
