The shrub's brilliant golden color makes it one of the most valued colorful foliage plants. It beautifully complements other landscape colors (including green).Yellow is the color the eye sees first, and this plant's distinctive foliage is testament to that fact.
This evergreen plant does best in Zone 10. It's a moderate grower you can keep 2-1/2 to 3 feet.
It prefers a full to part sun location to maintain its vivid leaf color...in more shade it will turn more green than gold. Add top soil or organic peat moss to the hole when you plant. You can add in composted cow manure as well to enrich the soil around the root ball.
Place it in a well-drained area, the more sun the better for the most vibrant leaf color. Trim to shape anytime, and prune it back fairly hard in spring - late March to early April. Water regularly, and fertilize with a good granular fertilizer 3 times a year (spring, summer and autumn).
