Variegated Plants have striped or spotted leaves with attractive colours. Variegation in plants occurs for many reasons. Most commonly it is a genetic mistake that occasionally appears in nature. A white variegation is the result of a plant's inability to produce any pigment in that area. A lesser production of the pigment chlorophyll will allow orange, yellow and light green colors to appear, or even shades of pink, red and purple. These plants are slower than their green relatives and often more expensive. We offer Variegated Agaves, Variegated Aspidistras, Variegated Bromeliads and lots of Variegated Succulents.
