(aka: Dysosma pleiantha) Podophyllum pleianthum 'Sugar Daddy' is a variegated selection of the Chinese mayapple. The white leaf streaking is very unstable...sort of like the people who are attracted to this sort of plant. Some years, the leaves may be solid green, and the variegation returns the following season. This genetic behavior cannot be altered, even with high doses of anti-psychotic meds. If you are unable to handle this type of schizophrenic behavior in your garden, you probably should purchase something else.
