This little gem will add a drop of sunshine to any border. A natural hybrid of 'Goldmound' and Daphne, discovered by Terry Schwartz of Bailey Nurseries. Beautiful sprays of pink flowers in early summer stand out against petite, golden foliage. A natural dwarf with a rounded habit, requires little or no pruning. Our trials show Sundrop™ to be hardier than most golden spirea. Foliage holds its golden-yellow color even in the summer heat.
