From Joy Creek Nursery, 'Gold Breeze' resembles a restrained, refined 'Zebrinus', a designer's staple for over a century. Both flaunt horizontal gold banding across their long, tapering leaves, and the graceful cascading habit is similar. But mature height of 'Gold Breeze' is shorter (5-7' with plumes), making it more adaptable to smaller spaces or container gardening. 'Gold Breeze' is named for its glittering dance, enhancing the very air when lightly wind tossed.
