For the gardener who has everything or as the perfect gag gift for a garden party, yes, it's variegated kudzu. Originally discovered in Japan, it was named by plantsman Barry Yinger, who's never met a variegated plant he didn't like. This fast-growing deciduous vine...rumors of several feet per hour when established are probably true...is covered with lovely trifoliate light green leaves edged in white. The vines are adorned with small clusters of Nu-grape soda smelling flowers in late summer. If you 're going to have a weed, it might as well be variegated. Not recommended for states where it has been banned, and because there are so many, we won't ship out of state.
