I have been growing both for 8 years, about 10 feet apart in the same
garden conditions. 'Gold Edger' is just passing the 36" wide mark and 'Gold
Drop' is about 22" wide. In their juvenile form they looked similar but
maturity brings many obvious differences. I would have to compare 'Gold
Edger' at this point more towards 'Birchwood Parky's Gold' than 'Gold Drop'
in outward appearance.
