Variegated plants will add visual interest to your garden. Here are just a few favorites to consider including in your landscape design.
Polygonatum odoratum ‘Variegata’: Variegated Solomon’s Seal is one of the most brilliant plants for shade. Arching masses emerge with bold green and cream foliage that lasts until frost. The delicate bell like white flowers adorn this tough drought tolerant perennial in spring. The gorgeous foliage contrasts well with Ferns, Hellebores, and Heuchera, making this a perfect choice for the shade garden.
Caryopteris divaricata ‘Snow Fairy’: ‘Snow Fairy’ will brighten your border with variegation that lasts all season. This mounding perennial reaching 4 feet tall and wide combines attractive green and white foliage with dainty blue flowers in late summer. It provides a reliable bold accent in sun to part sun. This shrub-like perennial looks great from mid-spring until the first frost and is drought tolerant and deer resistant.
Daphne odora ‘Wild Winter’: This is a stunning new variegated Daphne discovered and recently introduced by local nurseryman Jason Stevens. The fascinating foliage is an interesting mix of green, blue-grey, and cream. Rose pink buds open to white fragrant flowers in February. It was discovered as a sport on the typical green Daphne odora.
Fatsia japonica ‘Variegata’: Variegated Fatsia is the best tropical splash for the shade garden. The large star shaped leaves each have an irregular pattern of green and white that layer together to form a spectacular 4 to 5 feet tall shrub. It loves the dry shade garden and will delight you in late fall with space age clusters of white flowers. This tough and dramatic evergreen is also great in a container.
Miscanthus sinensis ‘Morning Light’: ‘Morning Light’ is a favorite ornamental grass because of the great form that brightens the garden. The narrow variegated blades stand upright in a graceful vase shaped form. By late summer the plant is topped with decorative plumes that last for months. This is the last grass we cut back in spring. In sun or part shade this is the grass that never flops and always looks great.
Acer palmatum ‘Butterfly’: ‘Butterfly’ is a small upright Japanese maple with delicate green and cream foliage that becomes sculpture in the garden. The soft bright leaves emerge in spring with rose pink highlights that continue to glow until fall. This small deciduous tree grows slowly reaching 12 feet tall in 10-15 years. The bright airy foliage lightens up the shade garden with a serene presence.
Ilex x ‘Solar Flare’: ‘Solar’ Flare’ is an elegant gold-margined holly that performs well in our hot southeastern climate. This variegated sport of the popular Oak Leaf Holly reaches 5 to 6 feet tall in 10 years and grows well in part to full sun. Each leaf has a bright gold irregular margin that surrounds a mottled blue-gray-green center. We discovered and named ‘Solar Flare’ and continue to find it a beautiful variegated heat tolerant holly.
Ulmus parvifolia ‘Variegata’: The Variegated Lacebark Elm stands as one of the most elegant and ethereal trees I have ever experienced. Our original grafted plant came from Pat McCracken. Every spring it delights us with a cloud like canopy of delicate white patterned foliage. This fast growing tree reaches 30 to 40 feet tall with a rounded arching form. The intense speckled variegation on each leaf combines to create a floating cloud that rests over the garden. The Variegated Lacebark Elm is hard to find but the seedlings can resemble the parent and grow quickly.
Carex oshimensis Everest / The Unique Plant
Carex oshimensis Everest: Everest is a new ornamental grass that is fantastic for the shade garden or containers. The blue-green and white variegated sedge sparkles from a distance and lights up the garden. This sport of ‘Evergold’ forms evergreen clumps reaching 1 foot tall and wide. Everest is drought-tolerant and deer resistant.
Phytolacca Americana / The Unique Plant
Phytolacca Americana: We found this variegated pokeweed in Johnston County about 10 years ago. It is called a weed but this is one of the most interesting variegated plants in my garden! I have counted seven shades from green to gold in the center of each leaf and the bright surrounding margin. Tony Avent has introduced a variegated and also a gold cultivar that deserve a place in our gardens.

A white garden need not be wan and pale. Thomas Broom, horticultural manager of Petersham Nurseries in London, shows us that in editing color, your garden will have a stronger sense of shape and texture. It might smell more interesting too.
Here are 10 ideas–and his favorite flowers for a white garden:

Keep It Small
Above: Silver foliage of Eryngium giganteum ‘Miss Willmot’s Ghost’ haunts Vita Sackville-West’s world-famous white garden at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent.
“A white garden should be relatively small,” suggests Tom Broom. “It is a narrow exercise; often enclosed.” The calm of a white garden offers respite, an escape from the rest of the garden, or the world.
Above: Lilium regale ‘Album’, on the other side of the wall at Sissinghurst, holds its own against brick (where smaller flowers would struggle to compete).
It is important to think about masonry, the immediate surroundings of the proposed white garden, advises Tom. A dark backdrop works best; yew is also useful here.
Before she designed her white garden, Vita Sackville-West already had made a purple border. Intrigued by the possibilities that a monochromatic garden would offer, she focused on a garden that glowed under the moon and would be filled with evening scent. See: Trend Alert: 5 Night-Scented Bloomers.
Add Other Colors
Above: Verbascum chaixii ‘Album’ and Oxeye daisy at dusk.
White gardens are rarely just white. “You don’t want a freshly laundered garden,” says Tom. Other colors will insist on being included, like yellow in a daisy or lupin. For those who tend to steer clear of certain colors, a white garden is the perfect opportunity in which to go against the grain, knowing that the predominant color of white will keep the others in their place.

I love variegated plants — so much so that some of my gardening friends make fun of me for it. While I enjoy the beauty of a green leaf, there’s more sparkle when it’s brushed, streaked, or splattered with other colors.
I particularly love variegated houseplants. The patterning in the leaves helps them stand out and feel more special — making them more of a focal point than an accent in my home decor.
A few of my favorite variegated houseplants include:
Red Aglaonema: This plant belongs in just about everyone’s home. It’s spectacularly easy to grow, thriving in low, medium, or bright light and having a wonderfully nonchalant attitude when it comes to watering (forget a week? Red Aglaonema doesn’t mind!). The lush green leaves bear amazing variegation, too, in shades of red, pink, white, and even gold.
Want to learn more? Check out our free Colorful and Red Aglaonema idea book!
Pothos: Another no-fuss, easy-to-grow houseplant, pothos shows off lustrous heart-shaped leaves that are usually streaked with shades of cream and gold. The common varieties are lovely, but it’s the newer types (such as ‘Glacier’ or ‘Manjula’) that have white variegation that really appeal to me. Pothos is delightful growing in a hanging basket where you can let it cascade down, horizontally on a mantle or tabletop, or even up on totem or trellis.
Learn more about variegated varieties of pothos (and philodendron) in our downloadable guide.
Earth Star: It took me a while to warm up to this plant (I’m not sure why), but now that I have, I really love it. Earth star features an almost spidery look with leaves variegated with shades of red and pink. This tropical has delightfully low water needs, too, so it thrives even when I get busy and don’t water it like I should. Brighter light helps bring out the best variegation. I have one on my desk at work that doesn’t get as much light as it likes and the new growth comes out red but then fades to green.
Nerve Plant: Some of the most popular varieties in our Exotic Angel® Plants collection, nerve plants show off dark green leaves veined in pink, red, and white. They like more consistent watering than the other varieties I’ve written about above, but the big dose of color and texture they provide is worth it. Watch for varieties such as ‘Frankie’ that have an interesting metallic finish to the leaves.

Q: Last year, I bought a houseplant that had variegated — or multi-toned — leaves. Little by little, all the new leaves it has made are solid green. Why? Has it mutated or does it need some special fertilizer?
A: Variegated leaves are a mutation of solid green-leafed plant forms and can revert upon occasion.
Fertilizer or the lack of fertilizer is unlikely to cause the condition you are observing.
Plant performance is directly affected by whether it is receiving the correct light intensity. Insufficient light may cause a plant to grow poorly, fail to flower, and be more susceptible to insect and disease attacks. It can also cause plants with variegated leaves to produce solid green leaves. It’s essential to choose houseplants that are appropriate to the location where they will reside.
The green-leafed foliage plants require the least light. Normal room light levels will usually be sufficient. Foliage plants with variegated leaves require brighter light, because their two-toned leaves have less chlorophyll, which is needed for growth. If the plant is not getting enough light, it will respond by making all-green leaves so it can make more chlorophyll. Place variegated plants near a window or artificial light source.
Flowering houseplants require even brighter light. They must be located next to a bright window, but not in direct sunlight.
The cacti and succulents have the highest light requirements and may require direct sunlight for them to perform properly.
If insufficient light is the problem, your plant is likely to start producing variegated leaves again if you relocate it to a spot where it gets more light.
If that doesn’t work and only part of the plant has reverted to solid green leaves, then you could try pruning the non-variegated parts off. Hopefully, the surviving variegated regions of the plant will grow new, variegated leaves.
If neither of these tactics work, then you should assume that the plant has reverted to its original green-leafed form and will unlikely change back.
Incidentally, variegated houseplants aren’t the only ones that can revert.
Even common outdoor shrubs with variegated leaves such as evergreen euonymus (Euonymus japinicus) and California privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) can produce non-variegated growth. These non-variegated shoots should be pruned away to maintain the shrub’s desirable variegated leaf appearance.
Q: When is the best time to seed the bare patches in our Bermuda grass lawn?
A: Bermuda grass seed germinates best when the night temperatures are above 65 degrees.
For desert home owners, that is usually in April, but for those in the Inland valleys or coastal locations, the best night temperatures might not occur until May.
Four Ways to Grow Healthy Variegated Plants
Variegated plants grow at a slower rate than other plants, thus in order to grow healthily they need to be cared for properly. There are various methods on how to grow variegated plants in a healthy manner; the important thing to keep in mind is not to rush them to grow. The slow growth is due to the fact the variegated plants don’t produce chlorophyll; hence it prevents the variegated plants from converting sunlight into sugar. Another important fact to keep in mind is that yellow-foliaged plants grow even slower than other species, thus they may need more care.
Fertilizer is a major concern to variegated plants because if you over-fertilize them, they may die. The occurs because fertilizer is supposed to help plants create nitrogen but in variegated plants, if there is a surplus of nitrogen, then it deposits onto the roots of the plant, which will prevent the roots from taking in water. This happens because fertilizer is a type of salt hence it will eventually prevent water from reaching the plant’s roots. This is very dangerous to variegated plants thus in order to grow a healthy variegated plant make sure to add the appropriate amount of fertilizer, otherwise the plant will wither and finally die.
Variegated plants need sunlight in order to survive but as mentioned before the lack of chlorophyll in the plant’s leaves can create a bit of difficulty for the plants because apart from transforming sunlight into sugar, chlorophyll also protects the plant. Hence a lack of chlorophyll and direct exposure to sunlight will kill the variegated plant. So in order to grow a healthy variegated plant you have to make sure not to leave it directly into the sun the whole day. Move it into the shade in the peak of the day.
3. Plant Genetics
Every species of variegated plant has a different genetic code thus one variegated plant may grow faster than the other or one may have purplish leaves and the other may not. In order to take care of your variegated plant correctly, it’s a good idea to be informed from the plant store you purchased it from or any other sources available, how best to care for the particular specie you purchased.
Variegated plants, like the shell ginger plant, is susceptible to spider mites. Spider mites and other pests of the sort are extremely harmful to variegated plant and can be counter attacked by using specific pesticides designed for this purpose or by allowing ladybugs and lacewings to stay on the variegated plants. Ladybugs and lacewings are natural enemies of spider mites. Just keep an eye on your plant, to avoid nasty surprises.
As you can see it’s easy to grow a healthy variegated plant. It will need good attention and care in order to grow properly. If you adhere to the above mentioned ways you can unquestionably grow a healthy variegated plant.
