Penstemon Chimera

(Clint) Medina, TN(Zone 7b)

I know this type of chimera isn't stable, but I'm wondering if I could some how root a cutting and get some of the gold to sprout up. I have these and all of them have purple leaves, but I'm wanting to create a gold-leaved variety. Anyone experienced in this type of plant and what the side shoots should produce? The leaves are half gold/ half purple and the stalk itself is half purple and gold like a stripe. Thanks!
