Quick Overview:

‘Gold Mop’ is a mounded, slow-growing, dwarf shrub that typically grows to 2-3′ tall and as wide over the first 10 years, eventually maturing to as much as 6′ tall. This is a filifera-type plant with stringy, whip-like, golden yellow foliage. It retains good yellow color throughout the year.
