Esperanza Gold Star

Gold Star is the selection for non-stop masses of golden summer blooms, this variety outshines all others. A fast growing semi-evergreen shrub that is valued for its large clusters of golden-yellow, bell-shaped flowers from late spring well into fall. The arching stems of dark green foliage form sprays of green and gold. It can be pruned to make a compact plant. Very heat tolerant and easy to grow.
