Plants with variegated leaves are attractive throughout the year, not just when the flowers are in bloom. Although variegation can involve zones of various colors, the most common combination is green and white.
Variegation isn’t very common in nature because the lack of solid green is caused by a lack of chlorophyll. As a result, most variegated plants have an inherent growing disadvantage.
Gardeners, on the other hand, prefer variegated leaves, so breeders and growers are constantly on the lookout for mutations with variegated leaves. Most variegated plants are the result of a mutation being propagated.
