ReviewsWrite a reviewSunjoy Gold BeretKathryn Dimitri | Jul 21, 2020These were very, very small when received and had broken branches. They have not grown much at all the past few months. I have had gold beret before planted in full sun and never had them burn like this. All four of these are burned and don't look the best. They have not mounded at all since they all had broken side branches when received, which needed cut off. I am hoping next year if they survive, they will have more sun resistance and look healthier.
