To know how much we like variegation you only have to look at one of our favorite plants; the hosta. Hostas are known for their variegation, and the many many patterns it comes in. Many of the patterns on those variegated leaves have been introduced by us and our hosta breeding program. If you try growing hostas, we know you’ll like variegated leaves as well.
Don’t care for hostas? If you said no we’re going to pretend you didn’t, but there are no worries. We have a large variety of plants with variegated leaves, to fit any conditions. For those who need drought tolerance or xeriscape plants we have a wide selection of agaves and yuccas with variegation. If you want a classy spin on tropicals we have a number of elephant ears (Colocasias, Alocasias), gingers (zingiber, curcuma, hedychium), and cannas with variegation.
The tree ivies (Fatsia and x Fatshedera) make for stunning variegated specimen plants. The large lobed leaves are stunning with splashes of color and pattern. It definitely adds focus to the shade or Asian garden. These and many more wonders of variegation are available online. It may not be easy being variegated, but it’s very easy to find plants that are by shopping at Plant Delights Nursery.
