I just purchased this plant. Information I found out: annual growth rate is 6 to 12 inches a year, upright broad pyramid shape, foliage is creamy yellow in spring and in summer is blue dusted with cream in full sun. It takes time to establish, the 1st year it can look 1/2 dead. Can suffer from sun scorch until it becomes established. Also called 'Goldie'.
